A Gen-Y, coming of age memoir about a family encountering and overcoming tragedy through the eyes of their precocious and witty 12-year-old daughter.

In a writing style somewhere between Harper Lee and Sarah Vowell, author Sarah E. Moffett recalls the time when, at age twelve, the life of her family suddenly began to unravel after a simple phone call from a dying family member.

What follows is a struggle to retain faith, hope, and love in the midst of inexplicable death and loss. Growing Up Moffett is written from a child s perspective, yet embraces the darkness that comes with the loss of innocence and the beginning of grasping death on an intimate level at an early age.

From the Publisher:

Growing Up Moffett resonates with laughter and broods with intensity as a witty, sarcastic, and occasionally humorous account of childhood experiences involving professional disaster-manager parents who move the family across the country to care for dying relatives. This parental expertise was necessary to manage botched black belt exams, scientific experiments gone awry, multiple emergency room trips, budding geniuses, and adventurous vacations.

While it is common for a publisher to promote a book as a can't put down, must-read, this truly is the case with Growing Up Moffett.

About the Author:

Sarah E. Moffett is a twenty-six year old attorney working for a Washington D.C. area law firm who calls herself an author moonlighting as a lawyer for at least two-thousand billable hours per year.

A native of Raleigh, North Carolina, she is a graduate of George Mason University School of Law and all of the insanity that law school entails. When she is not writing, reading, practicing law, or harassing her siblings, she usually can be found doing something that involves her iPod, preferably including running shoes.
