I think that this book, although well written, is a horrible book to hand to a child. I think that the message of how to deal with death and abandonment are totally wrong. Hand's mother needs to get counciling herself before she can be a mother to Hand. His sister is no better. Although realistic the book portrays a horrible message of how to deal with one's feelings.

This is a great book that really shows the things that a teenage boy feels about death, his mother coming back to live with him after 3 years, and other visitors in his father's motel, called 'Oasis'. Pick up this book if you get a chance!
