Willa Joe is up on the roof at Aunt Patty's house. She went up to see the sunrise, and Little Sister followed her, like she always does. But by mid-morning, Willa Jo is still up on that roof, and she knows it wasn't just the sunrise that brought her there.

Audrey Couloumbis has perfectly captured the pervasive feelings that can take hold when tragedy strikes - and the slow, subtle revelations that come when one can finally get near to the source. Download and start listening now!

    " Easy read...of course, it is juve. fiction, so that is why! Prose flows so nice that the chapters just fly by. It's about a pre-teen girl and her younger sister (who is temporarily mute) and their move to live with an aunt and uncle after their younger sister's death. Their mother is having a very difficult time coping with her youngest child's death, so aunt and uncle take in the two older girls for a time. Of course, both girls just want to be with their mother and see her happy again. But along the way, they grow stronger and more capable. Don't we all become stronger through the trials of life? "

    " This is a lovely novel about the effects on the family of the death of a sibling and how the other siblings cope. They are helped in doing so by moving in with their aunt, who is both the most interesting character and the object of scorn from the eldest sibling. Gentle humor and wise counsel guides the reader and the children in their healing. "
