This is a middle grade book that does so many thing right. The story is one, that during my many years of reading bedtime stories to my daughter, would have become a favorite for both of us. It touches on a very heavy topic, one that so many American families deal with. As a single mother, my daughter and I struggled a lot early on and Jackson reminded me of her in her younger years.
I know this is a middle grade book but one done in a way that could benefit adults, as well
