This book felt like a sleepy-hippy-drippy college town in the spring- like Humboldt, Eugene, or Boise...I wanted to linger on the pages, and curl up in a crazy quilt blanket, look out a big window at big sunflowers, listen to the Grateful Dead, read a Molly Katzen cookbook and drink herbal tea. After 17-year old Lennie's older sister Bailey dies, everything is tinged with memories of Bailey...or almost everything. Lennie has always felt like she has been a sidekick to Bailey; after her death, she's not sure where she fits in. Lennie's voice is distinctive, quirky and original-all at once making you laugh and cry, remembering the first time you fell in love or experienced grief. Give to teens who like realistic fiction, who enjoy art, who loved Vera Dietz or Hold Me Closer Necromancer. Delightful!
