“Understanding death doesn't necessarily take away our anxieties or fears about our own death, or our sadness about other people's deaths, but it does help us find ways to continue on with our lives.” ―Penny Colman
“A daring and satisfying approach to a difficult subject.” ―Publisher's Weekly, starred review
“Death, the last stage of the human condition, has been underreported and mostly avoided in writing for young people. Colman takes on the task with just the right mix of unblinking realism and sensitivity to varieties of beliefs and practices.” ―School Library Journal, starred review
“The author has a compassionate eye, and she manages to endow her topic with both humanity and humor.” ―The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
“This solid, sensitive book answers a wealth of questions young people have but often are too reluctant to ask.” ―Booklist, starred review
