King is one of those characters you will hold close to your heart for all the things he says and does not say. In an unimaginable sense of loss, Kind grapples with grief that is overcoming - when you lose a sibling-a brother-a sun-half of your heart. The book is probably one I will come back to in my lifetime to wrestle with all that was left unsaid between a brother and a sibling. “You don’t want anyone to think you’re gay, too, do you?” is one of the things, Khalid, his brother said, before his absence, before King could speak on it. Because he never told Khalid, that maybe he did like boys. How could he tell his brother, whom he loved more than life, his truth. Yet, King manages to walk along his brother’s presence as he comes to accept truths about himself that could not be denied. Khalid, was and will always be with King. Just like dragonflies, Khalid, would shed old beliefs to make room for all of King's truths.
