“This meditative, psychologically astute tale of a boy’s emotional maturation is true to life.” —Kliatt “Engaging, insightful, and thoughtful.” —Sacramento Book Review “This book is rewardingly remarkable for the characters and bits of truth that Milo never stops pursuing, even as he learns that truth is not what matters most.” —School Library Journal
