A very interesting look at the grieving process from an eight year old boy's eyes. Very moving and disturbing.

Sebby Lane tells a beautifully poignant and heart-rending story in Up High in the Trees by Kiara Brinkman. The characters are very real, and you find yourself cheering for Sebby from page one. It was captivating and seemed super-realistic to me. I would recommend it to anyone.

Just like the 'Curious Incident of the Dog at Night' the narrator here has autism and sees the world in a different manner. Thrust into a confused family in the midst of a serious loss, this young boy's simple, honest depiction of his family and his own pain and path to acceptance is engaging, touching and beautifully written.

I was originally drawn to this book by the cover. And then, the synopsis made me want to read page one and on and on. The story is beautiful and simple. The thoughts of this boy are so real and his relationship to his mother is a connection beyond earthful boundaries. Prosaic but the language is light. Really Amazing.

Disturbing! 8 year old Sebastian narrates the story. Nicknamed "Sebbie", he tries to deal with the death of his mother. It's obvious the entire family is in pain. The father really drops the ball and instead of embracing his grieving children and trying to keep his family together, he lets them all drift in their own pain. They half heartedly make attempts at helping Sebbie understand the impact it made on each of them. I think they took their helpless cues from the father. The sister is probably the most sympathetic, but everyone seemed wrapped up in themselves. I found this book morose and sad.

Telling the story from an eight year old autistic boy's point of view really made the story feel real and helped me see the heartbreak and confusion and pain he was living through, trying to deal with the loss of his beloved mother. I also felt like I was inside the fear of what was happening to his father and his family members as they tried to deal with their grief. This is an emotionally draining novel that I found drew me in from the first page and kept me in it's grip till the end. Would definately recommend.
