Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Mindy has always relied upon her mother-to listen to her, to ease the tension between Mindy and her withdrawn father, to love her. Then her mother is diagnosed with a brain tumor. After her surgery, she is no longer a laughing, lively presence. She has lost the power of speech, and her memory-and Mindy has lost her mother forever. Based upon Joan Abelove's own life, here is the wrenching story of a girl losing her mother early, a girl with a father who will not acknowledge what is going on-a girl who could have been you, or someone you know.

"Abelove draws this melancholy, but hopeful story with delicacy of word and feeling and creates three powerful, memorable characters in the members of the family. Though in sharp contrast to Go and Come Back, Abelove's first novel, this proves once again that Abelove can write books that are not only very complex but also vibrant and infused with tenderness."
