First novel has heart
Twelve year old Florine has always felt safe and loved, and she adores her vibrant, red-haired mother and her lobster fisherman dad. But when her mother fails to return home from her annual girls' weekend with a waitress friend, Florine and her dad's lives are forever changed. A 1960s Maine village, complete with the ritzy summer people and the steadfast year-residents, serves as the perfect setting for the devastated Florine to grow up as she tries to cope with her mother's disappearance. Grand, Florine's name for her grandmother, is the strength that keeps Florine and her dad from going under. I must warn you that this is a novel of losses and disappointments, but Rogers also treats you to survival and strength through Florine and her friends, as they navigate the years toward adulthood.
I received an advanced readers copy of this title. All comments and opinions are my own.
