“This is a beautifully written (and illustrated!) story about the power of friendship, love, and nature in the face of greed and destructiveness. With quite a few plot twists, unique characters, and harrowing moments, this book had me captivated. The author does a great job portraying what it’s like to be a misfit teenager, with thoughtful treatment of difficult themes such as a grandparent’s death, parent’s alcoholism, and bullying at school. Oslo is not the only interesting and deep character. The parts told from Jamie’s point of view develop her character in a way that is delightfully relatable! The book’s central theme of protecting the environment from capitalistic greed is especially relevant today.
