Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The story of eleven-year-old Cammy, who must come to grips with the sudden death of her cousin and rival, Patty Ann. "Another wise, beautifully written book from this well-established master."--Kirkus

Being cousins doesn't mean you'll be friends....

Cammy loves her family — except for her cousin Patty Ann. Though she knows she shouldn't feel this way, she can't help it. Patty Ann is too perfect to like, too perfect to be a friend.

Then one day something terrible happens, something that can't be changed. That's when Cammy learns the truth about Patty Ann, and about family love — and forgiveness.

Synopsis:

"There is such confident love and candor in the way Hamilton writes about friends, family, and community. With Dickensian exuberance in language and gesture, she evokes the physicalness of family intimacy, the way people lean on each other, snuggle, share food, drink in feelings . . . it's (the) story that makes this book special . . . Read it".--Booklist, starred review.
