A book written in the view of two siblings who have lost their older brother. They each cope in a different way.

This book was great I love the author's range, and the different perspectives of each character. I was able to relate to each of the characters' styles of coping with grief. This was a great story of tragedy and trial but also a great story of triumph.

what is goodbye is such a good book! it is a quick read- it took me about an hour and it was so sad. Definately read it because it really makes sense. I read it in one sitting and nearly started crying. good book.

This is such a beautiful, poetic telling of two children's perspectives of loss. This book reminds us all to take extra care of the children during the death of a loved one and don't assume their outward appearance tells how they're really feeling.
