Monica Wood reads every manuscript from back to front to make sure that each sentence is compelling on its own, not just in sequence. Her scrupulous attention yields some of the most engaging fiction out there. This moving novel is part mystery, part love story, part coming of age tale, and every word is gold.

The human craving is for story, not truth. Memory, I believe, embraces its errors, until what is, and what is remembered, become one.
