NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY The New York Times Buzzfeed Kirkus Reviews Publishers Weekly Chicago Public Library

Redefines friendship as something that must be protected, sacrificed for, and tended to with wisdom, patience, and love. Ocean Vuong, New York Times bestselling author of On Earth We re Briefly Gorgeous

A poignant coming-of-age novel about two best friends whose friendship is tested when they get the opportunity to leave their impoverished small town for an elite prep school. For fans of Looking for Alaska.

Life in a small Appalachian town is not easy. Cash lost his mother to an opioid addiction and his Papaw is dying slowly from emphysema. Dodging drug dealers and watching out for his best friend, Delaney, is second nature. He's been spending his summer mowing lawns while she works at Dairy Queen. But when Delaney manages to secure both of them full rides to an elite prep school in Connecticut, Cash will have to grapple with his need to protect and love Delaney, and his love for the grandparents who saved him and the town he has to leave behind. Jeff Zentner's new novel is a beautiful examination of grief, found family, and young love.

Zentner, Jeff

"A moving and rich novel about friendship, loss, kind strangers, the blindness so often present in the pursuit of love, and love itself. His protagonists have their eyes raised to the sky." Daniel Woodrell for The New York Times Book Review

Vitally redefines friendship as something that must be protected, sacrificed for, and tended to with wisdom, patience, and love and, to our luck, rendered in Zentner s gem-like sentences. Ocean Vuong, New York Times bestselling author of On Earth We re Briefly Gorgeous

In a word: sublime. This gift of a book will leave you with fiery, incandescent hope in your chest. Emily Henry, New York Times bestselling author of Beach Read

A novel with the soul of a poem. Jeff Zentner proves yet again that he's one of the most luminous voices writing for young people today. Randy Ribay, author of National Book Award finalist Patron Saints of Nothing

An ode to the healing power of nature and art, but also a testament to the beauty of family both blood and created. No one else can write like Jeff Zentner. Silas House, New York Times bestselling author of Southernmost and Same Sun Here

With profound, evocative prose and lyrical insights into the world surrounding a struggling main character, Zentner's powerful, emotional novel is one you won't soon forget. Buzzfeed

A wise, gorgeous exploration of loss and survival that will make readers cry...Lyrical and heartbreaking. School Library Journal, starred review

"Heartfelt and deeply moving...a book that readers will unhesitatingly take to their hearts." Booklist, starred review
