Stuck at home caring for her severely depressed mother and abandoned by her father, Mazzy has only the day-to-day dramas of her neighborhood to keep her busy. But between flirting with the boy next door and worrying about the fact that she's flat-chested, Mazzy has to face the fact that her mom is emotionally paralyzed by a family tragedy. As readers delve into the story, they'll eventually discover what it was that tore Mazzy's family apart, and they'll see what it takes to put it back together.

    " This is a very sad book. Just like This Is What I Did, Ellis holds out on the major drama, and just lets things out piece by piece so you slowly find out the terrible secret the narrator is hiding. Her writing is very sparse and it is SO effective. I'm sad because I bought this book from my library book sale and it's an ARC, so it doesn't have any of Mazzy's art in it...so I'm missing on that element of the book. That made me sad. Fantastic read anyway. "

    " I think about this book often. It haunts me. It is beautifully written and holds such emotion in both what is said and what isn't said. The pacing is perfect, the characters are real and vivid, the story is tragic and yet hopeful. I want to write like this! This is one I will be rereading every so often. "

    " I love her style of writing. The story was a little strange, but so believable from a child's perspective. I am totally amused by her stories. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jody | 11/13/2013

    " 3.5 stars. A heavy MG, readable in one sitting. Main character is quite engaging and the plot and back story unfold smoothly. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathy | 12/31/2012

    " I really liked the writing and the way the story slowly unwound, but I'm not sure middle schoolers would stick with it long enough to get it. Your mature readers probably would. It's not a very uplifting story....really tragic! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lori | 11/10/2012

    " Everything is definitely not fine however this is a very good story about how family members, friends, and neighbors help each other deal with a horrible tragedy. It's real and the author does a good job depicting the characters with all their imperfections and frailties. "

    " i thought the pictures of the "arts" were unnessary. the author should have used the space to strech the story more. i want to read more ending of the story. "

    " one of the quirkiest, saddest, funniest voices I have read in a long, long time. Ramona the Pest meets Sara Zarr. Where did this book come from? It's stuck in my head now. "

    " The writing wasn't my problem here, I just couldn't take this story. If it wasn't so short I would not have finished it. It made me crazy annoyed. "

    " The story it self wasn't bad but I didn't particularly like the writing format it was kind of lazy if you ask me. There wasn't any real depth to the main character and the ending seemed rushed. It was a quick read but I wouldn't recommend this book. "

    " A haunting story about a girl and her mom. I wanted to hurry to the end so I could know they would be okay, but wanted to take my time enjoying the simple and beautiful writing. "

    " This has such a tragic premise. I just couldn't get past that, even though the writing is clean and clever and sometimes funny. "
