It reminds me of several other amazing middle grade chapter books that do the same thing. Her older brother, Devon, used to help her make sense of the confusing things in the world, but he was killed in a school shooting. Caitlin tries to figure out his death and her world as her father retreats into his sorrow. I think all teenagers should read this book. Stargirl is a former homeschooler who begins public school for the first time. Which pretty much sums up the high school experience.

Care to name any? Eva by Peter Dickinson might count also a chimp. Gorillas appear to be much rarer, which is funny when you consider it. As it happens, Ivan of The One and Only Ivan is a rarity, and not just because his story covers ground that few other books have with the exception of the odd Good Night Gorilla. You will find no screeds or speeches or long lengthy lamentations. Thanks to its restraint the book ends up being a gem. One of the best of the year, no doubt.
