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.

Sorry For Your Loss

Review by Zemirah

This book was a bit of a challenge, death is a difficult subject for many folks. Evie was around death all the time since her parent's worked at the funeral home...I guess it became common for her to be around it. She had experience so she was able to help Oren when he lost his mom and dad suddenly and he became an orphan. Slowly they became friends and he was able to let go some of his grief.

Hard to get into

Review by booksnbroadway

You had to get to chapter 5 or so to enjoy it this book. It was good then, but I didn't like how long you had to wait.
