Eddie's father was a famous photographer in his life before family. When he commits suicide, Eddie is in limbo, and she leans on her best friend, Milo, for support. Summers' characterization of Eddie and Milo and their relationship clearly shows how shattered her life is, living with a mother who cannot take off her father's housecoat and tolerating life's intrusions upon her grief only half-heartedly. Eddie goes to the old warehouse where she discovered her father's body every night. When she chances a day trip, she encounters one of her father's students, Culler Evans and launches on a journey to try to find out why her father chose to leave them. Eddie's road trip does little to alleviate her confusion, anger, and grief, but as most life altering events do, this journey has a heart rendering climax and haunting resolution that will resound with readers. Recommended for grades 9+; this novel will appeal to realistic fiction fans. This novel may also be beneficial to those young adults who have lost a parent to suicide.
