Her father is gone for good—not on a business trip like her mother said—and Annie knows it. Her little brother, Gus, might believe that he’ll come back, but Annie is too sharp, too observant, to believe this comforting lie.

Without relying on pop culture references, as is so often the case, this is a great capture of childhood in the Upper Midwest in the late 70's. Anyone who remember childhood then, and can smell the Tater Tots and see the yellow shag carpet and paneling without the writer even having to be tell us they were all there. Very autobiographical, I'm guessing, and that may be where the plot lost a lot of its steam. But a lovely, poignant portrayal of a childhood from a very believable child's POV.

This book was promising but never really went anywhere. I liked the characters but did not feel they were fully developed and the plot was too thin. A short book I read it in one afternoon.

I loved the characters in this simple but so quirky...I laughed out loud several times. I found this author to really be different than anything I've read before!

A series of interrelated snapshots from a child's perspective on the loss of a parents and the daily struggles of life. An interesting viewpoint.

I read about a third of this and gave up. Just wasn't interested enough in the charactors to care what happened with them.

I was born in Harbor Springs, Michigan. More precisely, I was born in Petoskey, seven miles down the road, and was swiftly removed to Harbor Springs to live out my childhood. If you make a mitten shape with your left hand, Harbor Springs is located along the western edge of your middle finger as it rises above the ring finger. It’s a small town on the shore of Lake Michigan. That left hand of your ...more
