Daylight Chasers by Rue Sparks

This short novella is a beautiful blend of whimsy and grief. Each sentence and each word is carefully chosen in order to make the most of this strange adventure. Keenan works for Daylight Chasers, a company that makes the nearly impossible possible. He is there to guide Isabella through adventures on a day that nearly never ends, bending time and guiding her to miraculous activities. All the while, he is there to document the smiles and wonder. But as things go wrong at each stop, as he begins to actually see the world in front of his camera, he and Isabella see the beauty in joy and loss. Rue Sparks is a writer, artist, animator, designer, professor and, above all, a storyteller, and here they take readers on a real adventure. Unsure and nervous, like Keenan, you are inexorably pulled along with the story through every twist and turn.
