Reviews
[STAR] "A moving portrayal of mortality and its aftermath." - Kirkus (starred)
"Expressive, fluid...an exemplar of what it means to trust the audience." - Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"A deeply moving exploration of life after death, making peace with regret and life's inevitabilities, and learning how to move on." - Publishers Weekly
[STAR] "A gorgeous, resonating, even mystical creation with little text, overflowing with unsaid feelings... Gently, nudgingly, Lee brilliantly intertwines the past, present, and future."

"The illustrations are sparse as to be meditative, like taking deep breaths just to get to the next moment, which is how grieving feels. 49 Days shows that grief is a mountain to climb for the one who has to do it alone, and a painful journey for the people left behind. Readers will feel triumph and sadness at seeing Kit's completion." -- Mochi Mag


"A thoughtful, contemplative book -- a perfect synthesis with Agnes' lovely artwork. 49 Days is an unforgettable story of death, grief, love, and how we keep moving forward." -- Graphic Policy


"A beautiful and bittersweet tale." - Sequential Tart


[STAR] "49 Days is an unusual, profoundly moving graphic novel whose elegance belies its complexity and whose emotional impact only grows upon rereading." - BookPage


"A tale of grief, loss, love, and healing through a metaphysical journey of redemption and self-discovery." - Horn Book
"Middle and high school readers will relate to the universal experiences of love, loss, and family tradition." - School Library Journal
