This book was really good!

Review by Aubrey

It was a nice mixture of sad, happy, and funny, with relatable characters and an interesting plot. It’s about a girl named Evie whose parents own a funeral home. She meets a boy named Oren who’s parents recently died, and tries to help him recover. I recommend this book to people who like realistic fiction and slightly sad stories.

Review by RRocks

This is a really good book to help kids learn about loss. One of the best PJ books I've read. My sister read it after me and she loved it too!

Awesome book!

Review by Favorite25

Definitely one of the best PJ books I've read so far. It's fascinating, though it can be pretty sad at times. It made me laugh and cry at the same time. It was really cute to see friends connect as well as family through hard times. It was sad, funny, and heart-warming all together. Definitely a super/must-read.

Review by FluffyUnicornGRL

I thoroughly enjoyed this book! I couldn't put it down! It made me laugh and cry. I really like the family aspect of it also. It was super heartwarming but also sad, thankfully, though, it has a happy ending!

Great book

Review by Babyface10

This book reminds me kinda of a Jewish book of My girl movie and novel. It is sad yet at times funny. This is my favorite book now.

Really Good

Review by AtomicBeans

This book is kind of sad, but really puts life into perspective. It had important messages like not to prejudge people and that everyone feels different things in their own ways. I really enjoyed reading this, would 100% recommend.
