Written by Jennifer Richard Jacobson, Illustrated by Ryan Andrews
This was a clever setting for helping a boy deal with grief and guilt after the murder of his friend. As the Grover family faced setback after setback in establishing themselves in a new community and repairing their newly purchased dollar house, Lowen slowly began to heal and discovered the true meaning of friendship and community.
