Reviews

"[T]he Volpe siblings are relatable as they shut each other out; their journey toward reconnecting is well worth the ride. Heider skillfully interweaves seemingly disparate threads into this character-centered, heartfelt story, culminating in a satisfying conclusion."

--Publishers Weeklly

* "Readers will be hard put to judge whether which is more entertaining--the plot or the cast--but between the two there's never a dull moment. A buoyant ending leaves Winston, Louise, and the bear (who even gets a POV turn in one chapter) in better places."

--Booklist

"This is a story about teamwork in every sense of the word. It touches on how important it is to work together, support each other, and to ask for help when needed."

--School Library Connection

"Offbeat and poignant, this is a healing balm for living in an imperfect galaxy."

--Kirkus
