    *Starred Review* After Liam's older brother, Ethan, was killed in a hit-and-run, they were left with so many questions. Why was Ethan depressed in the weeks before he died? Why did Ethan's best friend, Marcus, skip the funeral? Why were their parents so ready to go through Ethan's room, and why have their best friends Joel and Vanessa been even cagier since Ethan died? Deaver's (I Wish You All the Best, 2019) sophomore novel deftly captures the chasm that a sudden loss creates, while offering moving interactions between Liam and Ethan through flashbacks. Liam explores who they are becoming after Ethan's death, and they also find out more about who Ethan was before. This emotional, character-driven journey is about a nonbinary teenager grieving their first shattering loss and, moving forward, allowing that experience to be a guidepost for the relationships that are important to them. As Liam navigates friendship with Vanessa, Joel, and Marcus and rebuilds relationships with their parents, they heal from the trauma of Ethan's death, learning to carry his love and memory. An unflinchingly honest story that doesn't shy away from the complex emotions of grief but also offers a hopeful path forward for Liam and everyone else left behind in the wake of Ethan's death. Pair with Nita Tyndall's Who I Was with Her (2020). Grades 9-12. Copyright 2021 Booklist Reviews.

When they aren't writing or working, they're typically found in their kitchen baking something that's bad for them or out in their garden complaining about the toad that likes to dig holes around their hydrangeas.
