Reviews

Without resorting to stereotypes, Jacobson creates a rich cast of characters who are realistic and complex. The prose flows naturally and the pacing is swift...A skillfully written and heartfelt novel about a family making a new home, recovering from grief, and the town full of people who join them on their journey.
--School Library Journal (starred review)

Jacobson memorably sketches Lowen's family dynamics, particularly his complicated relationship with his older brother, and his journey offers a compelling portrait of community and rebirth. Andrews's comics panels, which appear at several key intervals in the text, offer further insight into Lowen's struggles, particularly his grief over Abe's death.
--Publishers Weekly

Jacobson insightfully examines the dynamics of small-town life and strategies for revitalization as well as the landscape of Lowen's complex grief and survivor's guilt...A rich, thoughtful exploration of individual and community resilience.
