Felt really disjointed - and like it wouldn't work without the introduction. There were some moments where it felt like there was a rhythm being established and then it would fall apart! Some very sweet sentiments, but almost a little Pinterest-y. Lots of style, but no substance.

Ostensibly a story of friendship, many of the lessons / observances are applicable to living through grief.

It reminded me of Jonathan Livingstone Seagull, but even more poignant and powerful.
