Heartwrenching. If I had an entire box of kleenex it might not have been enough. I loved Aubrey, I loved her grandmother. I even loved the friend next door. This was a powerful and memorable story. Not my favorite of the year but very, very good.

I sobbed the whole way through this book. It was beautifully written with beautiful emotions. Aubrey and her Gram were amazing characters. I think this one is a true contenter

This is an incredibly moving book! I, too, fell in love with Aubrey and her grandmother and was amazed at how well the book dealt with such difficult emotions and situations. This is definitely a Newbery-worthy book.
