 “Heartbreaking and hopeful, innocent and wise, a gentle story about healing and finding connection—both in the past and present.—Kirkus, STARRED REVIEW

 “Reassuring, consoling, and lovely.” —Booklist, STARRED REVIEW!

★ “Bagley’s tender watercolors and lyrical text give weight and volume to a family’s grief. Her portrayal of Buckley’s hope and his mother’s acts of love are heartbreakingly beautiful and authentic. The ambiguity of Papa’s absence allows this story to transcend specifics and gives it a timeless and universal appeal. VERDICT The only thing better than this title for anyone who has experienced loss is the redemptive nature of time.”—School Library Journal, STARRED REVIEW

 “The pen-and-watercolor renderings of her two characters can feel slightly blocky and awkward, but it’s a deeply empathic story with an accomplished sense of place. In beautiful tones of blue and brown, she immerses readers in the coastal world where Buckley and his mother are trying to make sense of their lives.”—Publishers Weekly, STARRED REVIEW
