Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

. "Children will come away thinking they have heard something quite profound about love, fear, and hope for the future."

- Booklist (starred review)

Eddie Beckey makes lists for just about everything and everyone in her life. And for matters of real importance, she wears (and snaps) an array of colored rubber bands on her wrist. Unfortunately, the world is not always so orderly and knowable. No list can help her cope with what's happening to her best friend, Sally - or change the course of things for Sally's grandmother, whom Eddie has grown to love and depend on as well. With subtlety and insight, novelist Alison McGhee tells the story of a young girl's first encounter with grief, and of the enduring power of friendship.

About the Author

Alison McGhee is the author of three critically acclaimed novels for adults, SHADOW BABY, a TODAY SHOW Book Club selection, RAINLIGHT, and WAS IT BEAUTIFUL? She is also the author of a picture book, COUNTDOWN TO KINDERGARTEN, illustrated by Harry Bliss. She says, "Recently I went through a rubber band phase, in which I wore several on my wrist at all times and snapped them in an effort to retrain myself out of a couple of bad habits. Sadly, the bad habits remained — but happily, SNAP was born."
