's review

it was amazing

This book is set in 1959 with two sisters Tessie and Birdie. Their father dies unexpectedly while fishing with Tessie, but his body is never found. The story is told by Tessie age 11 and how she tries to convince her younger sister Birdie that their father is indeed gone forever. It was quite an undertaking for her, but she did an excellent job of it.
I enjoyed the way it was written and how the story twists and turns. This is a prequel to The Resurrection of Tess Blessing which I am looking forward to reading next. I have also read other books by Lesley Kagen and thoroughly enjoyed them.
