“Maybe it is because people keep dying on me and I am ripe for the picking, but I just love this book. OK, officially it is a book for children, but I think it’s for all of us. It isn’t just that the people who are trying to comfort you don’t know what to say: I don’t know what to say to myself. ‘She’s in a better place now,’ adults say again and again. But nothing about death seems better, it seems stupid.” —Barbara Epler
