The feeling of loneliness is pervasive here, as a little gift waits for her mother to come home from the hospital after an unspecified operation. The gift mails Mama a card and calls her up on the phone, mopes over her empty chair, and can't help asking as she swings with a friend, "How come your mother has never been sick in the hospital?" - while realizing, "I don't want Sarah's mother to be sick. I want my mother to be well." McCully's brown and green drawings are low-keyed, like the text, which will reflect the mood of a similarly situated reader, though they are also just as one-dimensional. (Kirkus Reviews)
