After the death of his grandmother, ten-year-old Spoon observes the changes in his grandfather and tries to find the perfect artifact to preserve his memories of her.


Spoon Gilmore has been dreaming about his grandmother since her death two months ago, but the dreams are beginning to grow fuzzy and come less and less frequently. Afraid that soon even his memories of her will disappear, he sets out in search of the perfect thing to remember her by.

When Spoon finds it, he quietly takes it to his room to cherish privately, making sure that his annoying little sister, Joanie, doesn't follow him in as usual. But soon Spoon realizes he's made a big mistake. Will things ever be right without Gram around?

Kevin Henkes is a great author, but I just feel that this one of his books was just too emotional and way too much about loving your grandmother. It's sweet and all, but not my type of book. Although, Kevin Henkes book Junonia is like fantabulous!
