Staff Reviews

Elvis Babbitt is a precocious 10-year old with a head for science.  Although she, her renegade older sister, and befuddled father are "not a family of criers," Elvis is attending mandated weekly counseling sessions and developing an 18-month grieving plan.  They are each coming to terms with the accidental drowning of her mother during a sleepwalking episode.  Funny, poignant, and insightful, Hartnett has created an original and pure voice in her debut novel.
