A poignant and necessary novel in verse about finding hope during difficult times, set in the early days of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Archie’s life—and the whole world—is turned upside down by Covid-19. Suddenly there are no Friday night dinners out, no going to school, no hanging out with friends . . . no leaving the house at all.
Even though he’s inside with his family all day every day, Archie feels more alone than ever before. While everyone else seems to be adapting to their new normal just fine, it’s like Archie is permanently on mute, unable to find words to describe how he feels—and unable to find someone who will listen. The bright spot of Archie’s days is the hummingbirds that feed outside his window. But then California experiences its worst wildfire in history, and Archie’s favorite hummingbird disappears. In a time when hope is hard to hold on to, Archie must find his voice and find hope once again.
