Wow, wow, wow. This book. I rarely become emotional whilst reading a book, but that happened to me several times while reading the story of Isaiah Dunn. In Isaiah, we have a young protagonist whose trying to work through his own grief while helping his little sister maintain some normalcy and can't really rely on his mother, as she is grief as well. I appreciated how Isaiah's mother was not made a villain, even though Isaiah was certainly and validly upset with her at certain moments, because it is quite clear she is grieving and depressed. The book handles the topics of grief, depression and alcoholism in a parent, and the emotions of children in an expert way that children Isaiah's age can understand and recognize. I highly recommend this book to EVERYONE.
