A page turner!


Ms Good is a new author to me but I enjoyed reading this book very much.  I will definitely be reading more from this author.

I enjoyed being in the classroom with Ada Rupp and her special needs students.  Nathan Yoder is one of her students.  His mother died but he doesn’t understand and keeps throwing fits and screaming because he wants her to come home.  She and Nathan had been in Mexico for her cancer treatments and he thinks that’s where she is.   Ada’s brother David signs and is able to communicate with Nathan.  They become fast friends and, only when he is at school or Ada’s house, is he calm.

Read this well written story by Rachel Good.  Read about Nathan and Josiah’s (Nathan’s father) struggles.  Does he ever understand that is mother isn’t coming home?  Will he stop being mad at his father for sending her away?

I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.
