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.

Greatest book in history!

Review by Violetflower

This book was sad at first. This book teaches about Jewish culture and what Jewish funeral customs are so others might learn some things by reading it. I will try to read this book over and over. Thank you.

If you love friendship books! This book is meant for you!

Review by curlycute

I love this book so much! It is a great book! I can tell you a little bit but! Not the whole thing I might spoil the book! There is a girl whose name is Evelyn! and helps out with the funeral that her parents own. Also she helps Oren [who's quiet most of the time] to get his voice back! This is a very exciting, interesting book! So if you want to find out more get this Amazing! Book! Ps [This'll probably be your favorite book!]
