This book beautifully captures the pivotal moments with our siblings that bond us in lifelong friendships of trust and safety. I love how the entirety of the story focuses on Jill’s moment-by-moment emotional journey, and how Chris learns that making grown up decisions means sometimes considering the bigger picture. The immediacy of this moment captures heightened childhood emotion perfectly, as well as the calm family can bring when all comes aright! This book is a beautiful tool to help parents nurture that sibling bond. Reading this brought a flood of memories back to remind me why I'm so lucky to have my siblings! My friends!
