Because of That Crow - Summary
Because of That Crow
Nine-year old Harris is still dealing with the death of his parents, three years after the accident. Bad memories rise around him like dark water. To make matter worse, Harris must finish his poster in time for the upcoming science fair…OR ELSE.
But he can’t seem to get the poster done. And nobody’s helping! His Grampa’s cross all the time. His older sister Tessa thinks only about a boy at school. And Pinky—well, Pinky only does what three-year-olds do.
When a mysterious crow flies into his life, Harris starts thinking about memory and how it works. But will his discoveries help him move on from tragedy, or will he sink into a sadness so deep that he’ll never be free?
Magic realism for ages 9 – 12.
