I read a few pages of this book in the library and just had to take it home. It is the memoir of a woman who's five-year-old daughter died suddenly of a rare type of strep. Heart-breaking and real, yet, not depressing, it is a lovely written memorial to the daughter she loved and knew so well. If one only reads the prologue, an essay on the lies people tell the grieving, it is worth your visit to the library.
