Great read. I wanted to read this since Missy Wilkinson is well known for her non-fiction. I was equally delighted in this book.

It had me from the very beginning of the story when Gate's mother beseeches Gates to find her (the mother's) heart. Gates also hears clearly and loudly, "There's much more to the universe than you understand and more to your place in it." even though her mother is comatose.

Gates is a very well, developed character wrestling with teenage angst, the fearing to be nerdy

Ms Wilkinson is a new star in the literary firmament, and this novel portends star after star as her imagination reaches beyond the high level of artistry I see in this first novel. She has forged a style that will serve her well in the next novel, and I will be there to relish it.

Several years ago, I interviewed Missy Wilkinson about her writer life. Afterward, she sent me coffee and a mug as a thank you, and I’ve liked her ever since!

The story begins with Gates, her

I picked up a book after sometime of lull.. Interestingly this one was a dilly-dally between a teenage girl's life and her adult-like amanita(more on this later) world..The starter is a gloomy death of the protagonists (Gates) mother..With bouts of doubt about her mother's (Lauren) final demise, she and her father(Miles) undergo a trauma which sets the pace. Most of the book is her new school and the trauma inter-twining with her effort to fit into the new school...

The usual parts of the story
