Tenderly, and with refreshing authenticity, beloved Minnesota writer Kao Kalia Yang tells the story of a Hmong American family living with loss and tremendous love.

"There is such power and pain and beauty in this brave little book. It is a thing to be treasured. Children who have experienced terrible grief in their young lives and are in need of seeing their sorrow reflected and honored have a beautiful friend in this story. The Shared Room is a tender thing—all heart and hope and quiet love. I love it dearly." —Kelly Barnhill, author of Newbery Medal Winner The Girl Who Drank the Moon

"A devastating yet beautiful meditation on loss, The Shared Room is a loving portrait of a family grappling with the impossible but necessary reality of moving forward together through their grief." —Minh Lé, author of The Perfect Seat
