Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for providing this e-arc in exchange for an honest review. This is such a lovely heart warming story and paired with "Altruism" by Matthieu Ricard made me question a lot of how I act towards others. I loved Hugo, Mei and especially Granddad and Apollo. Honestly I don't think I've read such a bittersweet story. Days later I've come back to add that I still think about the ending, the epilogue. Spoiler if you don't want to keep reading about the ending

If I had my way I wouldn't have had granddad and Apollo move on. It felt emptier in their household in the end without them and my vision of that world felt sadder without their presence.
