Read in November, 2010

Rosie, in her thirteenth year, with a dead father and a living stepfather and an alcoholic-in-mourning mother, is a tennis champ during this last summer of her innocent days. Lamott tells her story with such truth and warmth that I could hardly stop reading for any distraction, no matter how important--going to work, coming home, feeding my cat, feeding my fish, hauling buckets of water around, anything! There are many stories here, rich and complex, following the life of these people, this family, this girl.
