When his mother leaves with the father of his worst enemy at school, nine-year-old Jeremy seeks to make sense of her abandonment. He throws himself into recreating the Book of Birds, a collection of drawings that his mother took with her on the day she left. While his father fights his own depression, and his sister distances herself from their lives, Jeremy turns wholeheartedly to nature and finds solace in the quiet comfort of drawing.

In this novel, James Prosek tells Jeremy's story without blame, without self-pity, and without excuses. The Day My Mother Left should be read by anyone who has gone through the pain of losing a parent, and by anyone who wants to meet Jeremy, a boy who can see inside himself the person he wants to become.

    " Closer to three stars but I disliked the characters enough to only give two. I seriously wanted to slap both parents throughout most of the book. "

    " I really just felt like this was a nothing book. Nothing happened... "

    " This book was just meh for me. The main character is a 10 year-old boy whose mother left the family for another man. He copes with the divorce by drawing and painting, mostly birds, which is what interested me in the novel. Evidently this book was semi-autobiographical for the author. "
