finds himself athimself at center of a family as it struggles To Heal And Move heal and move Ethan is stuck working "ON A GRAPHIC NOVEL FOR SCHOOL "a The Unlikeliest Hero: The Story of Desmond T. Doss graphic novel for school he can t draw despite what his friends think Ethan s father is a comic book artist who hasn t completed a single story since his wife s death and finds himself stuck in a rut both creatively and in life Sarah Ethan s little sister wants a puppy and even though she doesn t know it needs time with her father The death of the mother has created a cloud over their family and Ethan is trying his hardest to push forward Inkling s entrance into his life brings joy and re connection with his father and the process in which they both heal reconcile and move forward is one that is truly heartfelt and emotional The connection that Ethan has with his sister Sarah who has Downs Syndrome is truly wonderful It s so rare to see biglittle sibling relationships that are not fraught with jealousy and teasing so it s lovely to see Ethan taking his role as a big brother so seriously He cares for her takes time out of each day to spend time playing pretend and even though he doeset annoyed he doesn t let that affect his time with her I think where this book excels is in the pure emotion on the page It s such a fun book to read but it has a lot of moments where you et a bit choked up over what s happening It deals with death in a way that it can start a entle understanding of the pain left behind but also focuses on the healing that can come from being with family As an adult I could see Ethan s father s rief in a way that I understood and felt truly worried about but it is written in such a subtle and entle way that kids will also understand the distance between him and his children It also tackles moral dilemmas involving inkling s ability to draw Is it okay to use Inkling to help with school work Is it okay to have it draw pages for your career To add to the charm it also has illustrations to accompany the story It has cute little ink splotches on each page and some eually wonderful drawings scattered throughout This is my first Oppel book but I don t think it will be my last He has such a light yet immersive style and he really excels at putting emotions on the page in a way that you can t help but feel them I think this is an excellent age appropriate book that will engage kids and adults and keep them reading I received this in exchange for an honest review All opinions are my own Moral conundrums rarely appear in middle Prisoner of Midnight grade novels Or really any novels It s much easier to writeood and bad BOSH!: The Cookbook: Simple Recipes.
