Inspired by the true story of the Japanese wind phone, an emotional novel about an 11 yr old in denial after the sudden passing of her lifelong best friend. Refusing to deal with what has transpired, she discovers an old rotary-dial phone sitting in her favorite tree. As people in her town start using it to talk to their lost loved ones, she slowly begins to process her grief. Sad, sweet and beautiful. ~ Reviewed by Reilly Hadden
