An unexpected connection becomes the saving grace for two unlikely friends in a heart-stirring novel about love, loss, and moving forward by a New York Times and #1 Amazon Charts bestselling author.Never knowing his parents, eleven-year-old Stewie Little and his brother have been raised on a farm by their older sister. Stewie steadfastly tends the chickens left by his beloved late grandmother. And every day Stewie goes door to door selling fresh eggs from his wagon—a routine with a surprise just around the corner. It’s his new customer, Marilyn. She’s prickly and guarded, yet comfortably familiar—she reminds the grieving Stewie so much of the grandmother he misses more than he can express.Marilyn has a reason for keeping her distance: a secret no one knows about. Her survival tactic is to draw a line between herself and other people—one that Stewie is determined to cross. As their visits become more frequent, a complicated but deeply rooted relationship grows. That’s when Stewie discovers how much more there is to Marilyn, to her past, and to challenges that become more pressing each day. But whatever difficult times lie ahead, Stewie learns that although he can’t fix everything for Marilyn or himself, at least he’s no longer alone.
I think this would be a great book to read in middle school English. The characters were realistic and likable.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Te author has a way of deeply developing the characters so that you feel like you actually know them.
This book presents us with dealing with our emotions including the best and worst ways to do it. Its from a young boy’s point of view but some things are the same no matter how old you are.
I loved this book. From the first chapter I was drawn in to the sweet little boys story and perspective. The kind of book that makes you want to be a better person! Highly suggest reading this one. Clean and wholesome.Thank you NetGalley and the publisher for the ARC!
A moving story about grief and loss through the eyes of a child And about finding the tools and the courage to move on.
Enjoyed this book and Ms. Hyde’s gift for story telling. She brings the reader into the story and it’s characters mind.
