Jeremy is not having a good summer. His best friends have moved away, and he has to stay at the cottage with only his little sister Sarah and his Aunt Margery. His parents have remained in the city so his father can have an operation.

But then he finds an unlikely friend in Tess, who knows what it’s like to lose someone. As his friendship with her grows, through good times and bad, Jeremy discovers that his father has left him something that will live forever …

Editorial Review

"There is tragedy in Mama's Going to Buy You a Mockingbird, but it is far outweighed by the sense of hope. Not sappy or sentimental hope—honest hope that rings true to anyone who has experienced loss." - Kelley Armstrong

"If you haven't discovered Jean Little, you are missing out." - Calgary Herald
