Very deep issues are presented in this book. King is friends with a boy named Sandy Sanders who confides he is gay. King then abruptly ends the friendship, as his older brother Khalid cautions..."you don't want people to think you're gay too."
After Khalid suddenly dies, King can't bring himself to reconcile with Sandy, whom he misses. When Sandy goes missing, King worries that harm has come to his friend.
Although it is a good plot, the characters need more development. Even though the story is told from King's point of view, he seems to change his point of view halfway through the story.… (mer)

Gr 4–9—The sudden and inexplicable loss of his older brother consumes King as he attempts to navigate his
changing relationships and connect with the dragonfly he believes Khalid has become in the afterlife. When his
former friend goes missing, only King knows the real reason, and he struggles to balance his emotions with his
desire to help. Callender deftly ties sexuality, abuse, racism, grief, and the hard parts of friendship into this fastpaced tale of self-discovery and hope.

Gr 4 Up—So many hate Moonflower without knowing them. It is only when Moonflower journeys outside their body
to the spirit world that they find peace. This is a nuanced blend of otherworldly fantasy with the realistic inner
struggles of mental illness. Moonflower's sorrows and triumphs will have readers weeping and cheering along.

Really solid for a YA book, especially ones about q/t identity which can easily be more After School Special. Sweet, loved all the characters. Teens are a lot sometimes, and that comes through.
