Isabel's mother died peacefully. At least that's what Isabel likes to think, since no one in her family will talk about the truth. But in spite of their avoidance and in spite of their brave faces, the truth has a way of revealing itself at night, in her family's behavior. Her father sleeps curled up on the floor right where Mama's body was found. Olivia wets her bed and wakes repeatedly from nightmares, and Frank has started carving his anger into his bedroom wall.

It's up to Isabel to help her family get beyond the pain and loss - to be the keeper of the night. But who will help Isabel? Download and start listening now!

    " This is a fine quick escape. Written in very brief segments, it's a YA novel set in Guam. The voice of the eldest daughter narrates coping with the death of her mother. "

    " This book, is sad at the beggining, STILL sad at the middle, then gets happy at the end! I would recomend it to people who like Relistic Fiction. "

    " This book, which takes place in Guam, is interestingly written in short vignette style chapters. Because each chapter is so short, the book reads really quickly. The book begins when the mother of a family has recently killed herself. The rest of the book is about how different members of the protagonist's family, a girl of about 14, handle that death. The book allows the reader to learn about Guam and hear the voices of the people there, visit the festivals, and see some of the traditions. Despite the horror of the main subject, the book has a breezy, tropical feel to it instead of what you might expect, and, in the end, ends up being as optimistic as most young adult books are. "

    " Excellent young adult novel about the recovery of a family from the suicide of the mother. Very moving. Set on Guam. "
