A wonderful realistic fiction book.

The Boy in the Black Suit is a wonderful realistic fiction book. Our main character Matt has lost his mother, this is the aftermath. There aren't many descriptions of her death (cancer). This book mainly focuses, not necessarily on grief, but on how Matt takes the most positive moments with his mother he possesses and applies them to everything in his life from that point on.
