Publisher Comments:

Dead. The word bounces from side to side in my head and spins in hot colors through my cold brain.

Dead means forever.

Forever, I cannot quite conceive.

It's the kind of nightmare most kids never even dream about.One ordinary Tuesday morning, Annie is pulled out of class by her principal. Within minutes, the life she knows is shattered by the story of her father and a gun. Now both of her parents are dead, and the only two people left to explain things to Annie and her brother are the grandparents they never really knew.

In this poignant and witty debut novel about love and loss, family and identity, Annie wonders how to look for normal now that everything familiar has disappeared and she's stranded in a world she doesn't want to recognize.
