Description
Newbery Medalist MacLachlan ("Sarah, Plain and Tall") returns with another compelling contemporary story about a child, his grandparent, and a special dog and how "small truths" make each individual brave and magical in his own way.



Praise For The Truth of Me

Praise for Kindred Souls: “MacLachlan handles a familiar theme with grace, providing a lens into an uncanny intergenerational bond, as well as the kindness and generosity of love.”
-Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Praise for Kindred Souls: “These are time-sculpted themes-the bond between a child and a grandparent, a child’s first experience of death, the comfort of continuity and connection to the natural world—and MacLachlan gives them her particular stamp of plain speaking and poetry.”
-The Horn Book

Praise for Kindred Souls: “The quiet rhythms of the story and the gentle banter of the dialogue make this an ideal group read aloud, but plenty of young readers will simply find it the perfect book to curl up with on their own.”
-Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
