I love Vada's poem at the end:
Weeping willow with your tears running down,
why do you always weep and frown?
Is it because he left you one day?
Is it because he could not stay?
On your branches he would swing, do you long for the happiness that day would bring?
He found shelter in your shade.
You thought his laughter would never fade.
Weeping willow, stop your tears.
There is something to calm you fears.
You think death has ripped you forever apart.
But I know he'll always be in your heart.
Other favorite parts:
- When Vada and Thomas J become blood brothers. I totally did that too when I was little!
- Harry tells Shelly he doesn't want to go to a movie, but that he likes Bingo. As a kid, that seemed fine, but as an adult, I realize how weird and lame that is!
- Thomas J says: "I'm going to be an Acrobat when I grow up" - Little kid dreams are the best :-)
- I love when Vada and Thomas J Kiss, and then say the pledge of allegiance so it won't be awkward.
