My favorite Jean Ferris novel! It champions the idea that family is the people who love you, not necessarily those to whom you are related.
I first read this book when I was a teenager and it's stuck with me ever since. To find it on my bookshelf again I just had to read it again and it didn't disappoint
I first read this book when I was thirteen and after all these years, it's still one of my favourites.
it took me awhile to find this book i remembered from when i was a kid. re-reading it made me smile because i've always liked stories about eclectic self-made families.

This author is not afraid to tackle difficult subjects: living with a deaf parent (Of Sound Mind), facing the consequences of a criminal act (Bad), or questioning one's sexuality (Eight Seconds). But Jean Ferris is also adept at writing comedy, historical fiction, and romance. What's most interesting is that she didn't publish her first novel until she was in her mid-40s.
