He wasn’t 12 and it wasn’t a bicycle accident. I’m not a child, I’m a grown woman with a husband and 3 kids.
But this simply told story about a little girl and her grief is so unbelievably relatable for anyone who has suffered the untimely death of a loved one. I’ve tried to read grief books and talk to people about it, but people say stupid things, and grief counselors who write books may not know what this type of loss feels like. Like a cannonball wound to the abdomen, as she so aptly describes it.
Thank you to the writer of this book. Just, thank you.
Park wrote this conversational story with such heart and humor, I’d swear narrator Phoebe Harte really was Park’s 13-year-old self. As a storyteller, Park knew and loved her audience. She tackled the complex subject of death candidly, yet compassionately, without being overdramatic or condescendingly romantic about the deceased person’s life. We felt Phoebe’s pain and we marveled in her hope. MICK HARTE WAS HERE is the perfect writer’s resource on how to be real. I can see why it was a counselor's favorite.
But I can still remember the exact conversation I had with Santa Claus when I was in kindergarten.
He said, “Ho ho ho.”
I said, “Your breath smells.”
And he said, “Get down.”
This purchase was as a gift, but as I recall the book is easy reading, and it may seem too easy a read for adults. A perfect book for teens, but an amazing story for adults as well.
