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.

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.
