5.0 out of 5 stars Mrs. Hopkins does it again
Reviewed in the United States on October 14, 2020
Closer to Nowhere delves not-so-gently into the lives of Hannah Lincoln and Cal Pace, two 12-year-old cousins who share their home after Cal loses his mother to cancer and his father to a well-deserved prison sentence.

Alternating between the preteens' viewpoints in the artfully crafted verse for which Hopkins is well-known, this book evokes a whirlwind of emotion while the reader accompanies these children on their respective journies of hurting and, ultimately, healing.

This book puts on vivid literary display the goings on inside the mind of a "troubled youth," reminding us all that it is often when we act most unlovable that we need love most.

At the end of it all, this book hits far closer to home than it does to nowhere.
