Dear Librarians,

As a teenager, I was haunted by my best friend's mother suicide. What kind of despair leads to this?

In my story about a family falling apart, sixteen-year-old Sarah Kunitz is a gifted singer growing up in a wealthy Boston suburb in 1970, where material riches and the shimmering fa├žade of affluence fail to protect her and her three brothers from tragedy.

"...deeply moving and devastatingly beautiful..." —Sara Gruen, author of Water for Elephants

"...announces the arrival of a strong, distinct and fully evolved new voice." —Jennifer Egan, Pulitzer Prize winner
