A father and daughter confront each other and their own wounds in a land of loss and reconciliation. HONORS Trudi Birger Prize Honor Book Tayshas High School Reading List -Texas Library Association Michael L.

And most important, the protagonist's emotional complexities seem uncannily true to life." -Publishers Weekly "R Coman etches with telling clarity Berry's stormy ambivalence, delicately and deliberately picking out the authentic adolescent hypervigilance. Recommended." -Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books "A deeply moving story." -Financial Times (London)
