Gorgeous book about how art -- and a broad group of neighbors and friends -- can help us heal. One wonderful feature of this story is how it evokes such a strong sense of place. The author Tommy Hays is the director of the Great Smokies Writers Program at UC Ashville and I felt I had traveled to Asheville NC and its environs after I read it. Grover, named for a character in Thomas Wolfe's books, is grieving the sudden accidental loss of his mother by creating weavings from living things, using materials from a small bamboo stand near his home. But when the little forest is threatened, he feels all his support is gone. A book for middle school through and including adults and anyone who has grieved.
