Horn Book Review

Lucy's mother's cancer returns and her boyfriend puts "a pause" on their relationship. On top of that, her summer job at a camp for kids with trauma and the revelation of long-held family secrets prompts Lucy to re-examine her innermost biases. Lucy, whose father is a Methodist pastor, struggles to maintain her previously steady beliefs in this original take on faith and hope. (c) Copyright 2018.
