Thank you to the @kidlitexchange network for the review copy of this book. All opinions are my own.
From the author of EXTRAORDINARY BIRDS comes THE SPACE BETWEEN LOST AND FOUND. A moving story about a girl coming to terms with her mother’s progressive memory loss due to early-onset Alzheimer’s disease.
This is a bittersweet tale of family and friendship which will tug on the heart strings of all readers. The girl, Cassie, who loves art and math, is well characterized and full of heart. Her declining mother is realistically portrayed- having both ‘good’ and ‘bad’ moments and unpredictable behavior consistent with her diagnosis. Cassie’s strung-out but supportive father and soccer-loving estranged best friend are also memorable.
An ideal read for anyone who knows what it is like to love someone with Alzheimer’s or anyone who wants to know what it is like.
