“Almost all throw adults walk around full of regret over a good-bye they wish they’d been able to go back and say better. Our good-bye doesn’t have to be like that, you’ll be able to keep redoing it until it’s perfect. And once it’s perfect, that’s when your feet will touch the ground and I’ll be in space, and there won’t be anything to be afraid of.”
This was such a beautifully written and emotionally charged little story of love, loss, and good-byes. Yes, it’s sad. You will tear up. But it’s so worth reading. Plus, as an added bonus, there are charming little illustrations on many of the pages that correspond and enhance the story.
