“Spanning decades, continents, and generations, Hosseini's latest exquisite novel resembles a colorful tapestry, a seamlessly woven tale of sisters, brothers, mothers, and fathers, and the unbreakable bonds between them. The story of each character individually is compelling, but they are interconnected so beautifully that they burst with emotion. The fluid prose that defined Hosseini's previous novels is even more passionate and thought-provoking in this highly anticipated work. I cannot think of another writer or novel that so artfully balances moments of profound loss and sacrifice with such poignant images of beauty and grace.”

The best kids' book I read in the last year! Funny and heart-tugging. Spunky and inventive Gertie is determined to win her mother's admiration to keep her from moving away, but her plans keep going awary in funny ways. "The bullfrog was only half-dead, which was perfect." - Nikki
