Why did you read this book? I can’t remember why I put it on my To Read list, but I’m glad I did.
Has Jeremy read it? No.
42-word review: Told mostly in flashback to the year when Tillie’s mother disappeared, this heartbreaking portrait of a child trying to make sense of the world captures the blurred edges between childhood reality, imagination and misinterpretation. Bonus: the plot’s almost as compelling as Tillie.
