The Dead and the Gone by Susan Beth Pfeffer
For being a companion to an earlier book, this story stood remarkably well on its own. I liked how the family's faith played strongly into the story but yet I didn't feel preached at, and the characters felt alive and authentic to me. Equal parts thought-provoking and heartwarming and gut-wrenching. Not necessarily the best book I've ever read, but I'll give this one a Thumbs Up for now.
