Product description

In Caitlin’s world, everything is black or white. Things are good or bad; anything in between is confusing. That’s the stuff Caitlin’s older brother, Devon, has always explained. But now Devon is dead, killed in a high school shooting, and Caitlin feels completely lost. She wants to move on, but as an eleven-year-old girl with Asperger’s syndrome, she doesn’t know how, and Dad is no help at all. But when she reads the definition of closure, she realises that it is what she needs. In her search for it, Caitlin discovers that not everything is black or white, and that the world is full of colours, both messy and beautiful… A stirring tale of grief, healing and making sense of a difficult world, seen through the eyes of a bereaved girl.
