Glitter Gets Everywhere / Yvette Clark

After 11-year-old Londoner Kitty’s mom passes away, Kitty finds that the world has the audacity to continue spinning and that she has to find a “new normal.”  As the months pass, she learns that grief leaves little pieces of itself everywhere—like glitter.  When Kitty’s dad proposes that the family move across the ocean for a few months, Kitty’s not sure it’s the right choice.  A warm, funny, and thoughtful look at how we learn to live with a loss.  Ages 10 and up.
