Reviews
Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"Beautifully drawn tête-bêche-style volume that offers two stories. . . . Evocative double portrait."

School Library Journal (starred review)
"A tender and beautiful work about loneliness and yearning for connection. A modern classic."

Kirkus Reviews
"Will spark joy and inspire."

Booklist
"A reminder that we share more similarities than differences, this speaks to anyone longing for a friend."
