Thomas Moran, a fifth-grade Michigan boy who is left to navigate a difficult home situation after his mother's disappearance, is beautifully portrayed by Tavia Gilbert. Thomas's mother had been a shut-in, due to her depression. When Thomas comes home from school to find out that his mother has gone away, both he and his father are left floundering. Thomas is guided through his grief by Mrs. Sharp, a foreign-accented neighbor who helps him craft a story that creates an imaginary place for his mother where he can find her. Gilbert's strong narration illuminates Thomas and his father's relationship as well as the supporting friends and neighbors who provide Thomas with closure.
