An amazing young man
We know Bryce personally. Both of our boys went to school with Bryce (Alden Montessori). He is one very special boy. He’s been through so much and is full of love and kindness. His words and emotion are poured out in raw honesty in this book. He gives you unfiltered access to the grieving process from a child’s perspective. What a wonderful, heartbreaking and inspiring book.
