from Dear Reader
As a librarian, I notice the book doesn't go out much and I think it's because parents find it disturbing. And it is.
Its courageous and astonishingly clever handling of very painful subjects with only a flicker of hope near the end is perhaps too much for adults to handle or think their kids can handle.
Still I think some of its messages are important for people of all ages to face: humans can be horrifically cruel to animals. And to each other. There is profound beauty in a possibility, almost surreal, of a loving connection between two lonely, discarded souls....
Beautiful, heart wrenching book. Will treasure it always.
