  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2020 October #2
    It's been two years since Georgia's dad passed away, and her life still feels far from normal. Her best friend since forever, Theo, no longer seems to fit what Georgia wants in a friend now, and tangled up in the grief and growing pains is Georgia's struggle to make art. Her father was a lauded abstract artist, but art was a passion shared by the whole family, from Georgia's own drawing and painting talents to her mom's position at the Met; but Georgia's creative light blinked out with the loss of her father. Gertler's debut will speak to readers who loved Kate Allen's The Line Tender (2019) or Nicole Melleby's Hurricane Season (2019), as she ably blends art history and artistic expression with Georgia's soul-searching and personal growth. A dash of mystery also finds its way into the narrative as Georgia becomes preoccupied with discovering the intended subject of an unfinished work of her father's. Gertler keeps hold of all the narrative threads, providing satisfying resolutions on all fronts. Grades 4-7. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
