In a starred review, PW wrote, "Two gifts on a boy's 12th birthday fortuitously bring an entire family closer together. Once again, Henkes explores family relationships with breathtaking tenderness, showing how feelings of guilt, bitterness and fear can be quelled by more deeply rooted love." Ages 8-12. (Aug.)
