But when Quinn spots a duckling all on its own, his own feeling of not belonging bubbles to the surface. How will Quinn get through this time in his life when everything seems so upside down? "With gorgeous illustrations and thoughtful, beautiful words, this story of Quinn finding his place in a complicated world is told simply and vividly. A treasure." -Alice Kuipers, award-winning author "A beautiful story of what it means to find courage and strength from within ... a powerful story for families coping with the uncertainty of illness."-Kristine Scarrow, author & hospital writer-in-residence
