Descripción

This surreal novel tells a familiar story of grief in a unique way through an irresistible chorus of female voices—“haunting and healing in equal measure” (Kirkus Reviews).
 
In a small lakeside town where summer people flock to vacation, mothers bake their secrets into moon pies they feed to a silent blue girl. Their daughters have secrets too—that they can’t sleep, that they might sleep with a neighbor boy, that they know more than they let on. But when the daughters find the blue girl, everyone’s carefully held silences shake loose.
 
Told through the alternating perspectives of three mothers and their teenage daughters “with spare prose and a keen ear . . . Foos effortlessly inserts a humanized sin-eater into the center of a complex, emotionally volatile group of families” (Kirkus Reviews).
