This moving graphic novel tells the story of the affection between a girl and her grandfather. When the grandfather withdraws in grief after his wife dies, the girl is determined to live life fully herself and enters an extraordinary contest the result is a sensitive portrayal of pursuing a dream.

Grandfather, a man of few words, is devastated when his beloved wife succumbs to cancer, and he sinks into depression. His granddaughter ("MarMar," as he calls her) has a different response. She decides to enter the Who Will Go to the Moon Contest, and when she actually wins, she hopes that Grandfather will be proud of her. She embarks on the thrilling journey and at first it is wonderful, but just as she is about to reach the moon, her journey takes an unexpected turn.

Written by Stephanie Lapointe and beautifully illustrated by Roge, this imaginative graphic novel explores intergenerational relationships, love, death, dreams and illusions.

An undeniable if imperfect gem." - Kirkus Reviews "This is beautiful, bewitching stuff ... the enigmatic symbolism, poetic language, and evocative artwork may utterly entrance the right reader." - Booklist
