Product description

Review

"Kadohata's stunningly intimate narrative reveals a complex boy, as self-protective as he is a danger to himself, but oh so clear about the true nature of things."-- "The New York Times"

[Q]uietly powerful.-- "The Washington Post"

If literary genius is composed, at least in part, by an uncanny ability to enter other worlds, then 'Half a World Away' proves Cynthia Kadohata's genius - not that there was any doubt.-- "The Boston Globe"

Kadohata creates an inspiring story that celebrates hope and second chances.-- "Publishers Weekly, STARRED REVIEW"

Thought provoking and emotionally engaging, this is wholly satisfying.-- "Booklist, STARRED REVIEW"
