In these forty life-altering, life-affirming, and extremely short short stories, the award-winning poet Naomi Shihab Nye proposes that no matter how great the divide between friends, siblings, life and death, classmates, enemies, happiness and misery, war and peace, breakfast and lunch, parent and child, country and city, there is, in fact, no long distance. Not anymore.
“Nye’s work opens readers’ eyes to new worlds and experiences and does it with thoughtful simplicity.”
-Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA)
