A beautifully written story on friendship, grief, loss, and healing with a generous helping of mystery and suspense thrown into the mix. Every character and environment is poppin'-off-the-page real, to the point where I could almost feel the muggy Georgia summer, even though it was 25* out and my hands were frozen numb from holding the book. (I couldn't put it down after I picked it back up.)

This is more than your average coming-of-age tale - this is a story that teaches about compassion, mental illness, tolerance, and gender issues.

An absolute must-read and essential addition to every middle school library.
