Product description

Review

"In this graceful first novel, the funeral of one boy's grandmother excites a curiosity about death in three Japanese schoolboys . . . An offbeat and unsentimental coming-of-age story." --Starred, Kirkus Reviews

"An eloquent initiation story that first touches and then pierces the heart . . . The passage of the time and the nature of mutability are poetically expressed in this warmly humorous narrative, deserving of equally high marks in kid appeal and literary merit." --Starred, Publishers Weekly

"A book about death that espouses the pure joy in life." --School Library Journal
