This book follows a boy named Arlo and his experiences. The tragedy of his parents' death years before, the heartbreak of his grandfather's ailing state and failing memory, and the courage it takes Arlo to seek out his grandmother and break family barriers that were forged long ago. It's a story of one boy coming forward to help heal, be healed, and suffering through the trials that courage brings.
This book was very moving and very simple. I was really happy that the author was able to convey real emotion without adding unnecessary plots. It was kept to the basics, but it was still very profound and enjoyable. Another thing I was glad for was a happy ending, without everything being perfect. The book was able to show a realistic approach and provide a happy ending. It was uplifting and definitely worth the read.
