File under "really fantastic books that are just not my cup of tea." We begin the story knowing that 16 year old Lydia is dead, but her family, gathered round the breakfast table waiting for her, do not yet know. The story unfolds in pieces, cutting back and forth between the present--the aftermath of Lydia's death & how her family makes sense of & deals with it--and the decades of events in the lives of herself, her siblings, and her parents that ultimately led up to her death. Really, really brilliantly and beautifully written, but DAMN, it's utterly and relentlessly depressing, without a hint of humor or levity anywhere.
