"Saburi’s Photoshop illustrations mirror the plot, riding the wave of Sakura’s emotions, adding layers of depth and detail. Blocks of solid colors—cream, plum, indigo, and black—are shot through with crisp white starlight and snow, and provide the perfect backdrop for this heartwarming story of the ephemeral, the eternal nature of love, friendship, cherry blossoms, and stars.”  --- Booklist, starred review
