From Booklist:

Nevai's first novel substantiates her previous success in the short story collection Normal (1997). Here each chapter snaps tight as a snare drum on its own, while together they are linked perfectly in a tender, subtle way that speaks volumes for Nevai's belief in her readers' intelligence and ability to find her cords of connection and follow them. Nevai tells a simultaneously charming, witty, and realistic story of Tamara Johanssen, a 29-year-old with a painful past searching for peace and hope in an unknown future. Tamara is the second of three girls and a survivor, even more than her sister (a successful TV producer), who intentionally shelves the tragic death of their parents and youngest sister in a house fire that she chalks up to accident instead of intentional arson provoked by a mother losing her grip on sanity. It's refreshing to see how deftly Nevai tells a good story by avoiding unnecessary words or details and revealing important emotional information gracefully and patiently, little by little.
