One Wave at a Time

A Story about Grief and Healing

After his father dies, Kai experiences all kinds of emotions: sadness, anger, fear, guilt. Sometimes they crash and mix together. Other times, there are no emotions at all—just flatness. As Kai and his family adjust to life without Dad, the waves still roll in. But with the help of friends and one another, they learn to cope—and, eventually, heal. A lyrical story about grieving for anyone encountering loss.

  • Moments are represented like pictographs, making this offering seem like a handbook or guide. The text’s acknowledgement of the various emotions and slow healing process is much needed.
