"How could someone like Mick die"? He was the kid who freaked out his
mom by putting a ceramic eye in a defrosted chicken, the kid who did a wild
dance in front of the whole school--and the kid who, if only he had worn his
bicycle helmet, would still be alive today. But now Phoebe Harte's
twelve-year-old brother is gone, and Phoebe's world has turned upside down.
With her trademark candor and compassion, beloved middle-grade writer Barbara
Park tells how Phoebe copes with her painful loss in this story filled with
sadness, humor--and hope. Chosen by "Publishers Weekly" as one of their
Best Books of 1996. "A full-fledged and fully convincing drama" ( "Publishers
Weekly" ).
