Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

MILO is the funny and poignant story, told through text and cartoons, of a 13 year old boy’s struggle to reconnect with the loss that hit the reset button on his life. Loveable geek Milo Cruikshank finds reasons for frustration at every turn, like people who carve Halloween pumpkins way too soon (the pumpkins just rot and get lopsided). The truth is - ever since his mother died there’s not much Milo likes anymore. Now, instead of the kitchen being full of music, his whole house has been filled with Fog. Nothing’s the same. Not his Dad. Not his sister. And definitely not him. In love with the girl he sneezed on the first day of school and best pals with Marshall, the “One Eyed Jack” of friends, Milo copes with being the new kid (again) as he struggles to survive the school year that is filled with reminders of what his life “used to be."

Not his Dad. Not his sister. And definitely not him. Milo achieves a rare and easy balance of poignancy and awkward, natural humor, making it deeply accessibleand#8212;this is the kind of book that can change lives.
