An American Bookseller "Pick of the Lists"
"It is 1975 in Harvey, Ohio, a town that Doreen's mother says is becoming full of newly divorced women and their kids. Mama Dot claims that kids don't get divorced, but Doreen knows better. With a tart tongue and heart-wrenching lyricism, Doreen narrates this story, watching as her adored younger brother expresses, in a variety of ways, how distraught he is by their father's move to Chicago....Another tender and eloquent book from a gifted writer."--Booklist (starred review)
