3.5/5 Goodreads

Arthur Parkinson is fourteen during the dreary winter of 1974, experiencing the confusing pangs of adolescence and the pain of his parents' divorce. His world is shattered further by the sudden and violent death of Annie Marchand, his beloved former baby-sitter. Narrated by the adult Arthur, who continues to be haunted by memories, these interlinking stories of a young man's unraveling family and the circumstances leading up to Annie's death form the backdrop of an intimate tale of the price of love and belonging, told in a spare, translucent, and unexpectedly tender voice.

"Beautiful and harrowing... An exquisite double helix, each of its two strands the tale of an unraveling family, curving in tenuous but essential relation to the other." - Elle
"Stunning...A truthful and deeply sad picture of the American hinterland, which has lost religion and maybe also lost its capacity for sustained love.... Wonderfully effective... O'Nan sees with a vengeance." - The New York Times Book Review
