50% of all profits made will be going to Winston's Wish.
There are some characters and they do grow and try to move on with their lives.
I'm not sure how to mention the theme without spoiling the story, but let's say it has something to do with death and life after death.
Its written in first person narrative from a mysterious child's point of view, not sure of what gender.

This is a simple child's story that I found beautiful and well written. It's a sad story and things are revealed lightly and gradually throughout. The story is short, and I fear that writing anymore of it will completely spoil it. Its a slight mixture of supernatural and reality.
Quick notes: This was given to me by an author, thus this review will appear in its entirety on goodreads as well as the blog. I would like to thank the author for the opportunity to read this book.
