Product Description

Austin's summers at his grandparents' farm were full of family traditions. He and his grandfather loved to go fishing. Or they would pick blackberries in the dark and eat them for dinner. And this summer, Grandpa was going to teach Austin fly-fishing. Now Grandma is alone on the farm, and everything feels different. But with a string of broken beads and a spur-of-the-moment fishing trip, Austin and his grandmother learn how to keep their memories of Grandpa alive--and begin some new traditions of their own.

Publisher's Description

"Austin's visit to his grandmother's is the first since Grandpa died. Austin notices Grandpa's things but feels the emptiness of his absence. This spare story vividly captures the emotions of painful times and shows how they ease with sharing and remembering. Boy and grandfather were close, but boy and grandmother seem destined to be just as close, with Grandpa's memory to bind them. Poignant and perceptive, this has impressive resonance, and readers won't easily shed its warm afterglow."--(starred) Booklist.
