Bird Lake Moon: Review Haiku

So many ways to
lose someone; an honest look
at grief, and summer.

Bird Lake Moon by Kevin Henkes. Greenwillow, 2008, 192 pages. To be published in May.

TLA note: Last night a bunch of publishers hosted a cocktail party. Kevin Henkes was one of the guests, and at one point he was just a few feet away from me, in a knot of people. I was pretty sure I recognized him, but I wasn't positive it was he, and his arm was holding a drink in such a way that I couldn't see his nametag. Not two seconds later, a fearless librarian walked over, bent her torso ninety degrees, stood up, and reported back to her cluster of friends, "Yep. It's him." Hee.
