Wow, what an enjoyable book! This well written YA novel is a coming of age story, an exploration of grief, a look at sibling/family dynamics, and a deep dive into the nature of friendship. The author helps us find all the characters (well, most of them) likable by providing different points of view. I haven't been a teenager for a long time, but the characters seem very real and the dialogue rings true. The story is well told and plotted, and the writing is great. All in all this is is a great book and I recommend it to all YA readers.
