This story was so spare that it read more like a poem. The end just sort of happened, and I think young readers will feel jarred out of the story and cheated out of any resolution. Johnson takes three young characters and tells their story in alternating segments. There's a lot of serendipity about this plot, but that wouldn't have been as much of a problem if there hadn't been such an abrupt, unexpected ending. I'll be passing this along for someone else to read.
