Description

A novel about the pain of grief that is as unexpectedly funny as it is wiseTen-year-old Jennifer Day lives in a small mining town full of secrets. Trying to make sense of the sudden death of her teenage sister Beth, she looks to the adult world around her for answers. As she recounts the final months of Beth's life, Jennifer sifts through the lies and the truth, but what she finds are mysteries, miracles and more questions. Was Beth's death an accident?Why couldn't Jennifer - or anyone else - save her? Through Jennifer's eyes, we see one girl's failure to cross the threshold into adulthood and her family slowly falling apart. Her eccentric nanna is banned from visiting and her parents blame Beth's friends and each other.Karen Foxlee captures perfectly the essence of growing up in a small town and the complexities and absurdities of family life.
