it was amazing
bookshelves: 2012-10, debut, grief, lead-girl, printz-worthy, ya

A study in grief and the way you are simultaneously not of this world and way too much painfully in the world. Claire's lost her mother, her friend. The prose of this echoes what she's reading in school (where she's just trying to survive, graduate, move on) so there are moments of Dickinson, moments of W.C. Williams. Just gorgeous. I really have high Printz hopes for this one.
