In this tender exploration of a mother-daughter relationship, Kim and her mum learn that in order to support and truly take care of each other, they need to be tough— and that sometimes being tough means asking for help.
"This tender tale imparts that asking for help shows toughness too" —New York Times
"Button elevates these tender moments thanks to a keen sense of compassion for her characters, underlining that even the most seemingly mundane moments can have an impact. Buried within this showcase of a loving mother-daughter relationship is the potential catharsis of grappling with accepting help. Mok’s compassionate gouache artwork—full of muted colors, gently curving lines, and arresting facial expressions—enfolds this tale in its earnest embrace. Mostly light-skinned characters fill out the cast, including Kim and her mum. Powerful in its vulnerability." —Kirkus Review
