Reviewer Rating:


 Robbie cannot relate to his parents who are, again, off touring around the world with their music ensemble. Each summer Robbie looks forward to spending time with his Grandmother, Maddy.  Robbie and Maddy have a very close relationship with each other and with nature. They both enjoy spending time in the outdoors and have a deep connection (almost magical) with the natural world. His summer doesn’t go exactly as planned but with a little help, he learns a lot about nature, his mother and what it means to be you.  I loved reading about the relationship of Robbie and Maddy. Robbie’s dog, Ellie, is also an important character in the novel. Any dog lover will relate to the love Robbie has for her.
