When Rose's mom dies, she leaves behind a brown paper bag labeled Rose's Survival Kit. Inside the bag, Rose finds an iPod, with a to-be-determined playlist; a picture of peonies, for growing; a crystal heart, for loving; a paper star, for making a wish; and a paper kite, for letting go.

As Rose ponders the meaning of each item, she finds herself returning again and again to an unexpected source of comfort. Will is her family's gardener, the school hockey star, and the only person who really understands what she's going through. Can loss lead to love?

A wonderful, heartwarming book! Perhaps a little predictable, but a nice read. The characters are lovely - bravo!

This book was so great! My friend at school told me she admires me for reading books about sappy love stories that are so predictable!The thing about this book, though, is that it seems like you can predict what will happen, but it doesn't turn out that way. The ending really was just perfect because it ties up every lose end that you've been trying to find out since you started the book, but maybe not in the way you had expected...
