Overview

Inspired by a photograph of a happy tribe of Indians, young Cosette decides to start a tribe of her own by playing matchmaker for her divorced mother in hopes of finding a replacement for her absent father. Unaware of the repercussions her meddling will bring, Cosette triggers a series of dark events, which isolate her from her family, forcing her to deal with the life-shattering consequences of her actions on her own. With an unshakable sense of hope and humor, Cosette navigates through the hippie culture of the mid-1960s, facing off with life and death, while stumbling upon things both terrifying and beautiful.

Editorial Reviews

Back cover - Garrison Somers
It’s a lot of fun to find a book that pulls you in like a sneaky friend does when you stand a tad too close to the edge of the swimming pool. Leah Griffith writes like the words are just up there on a shelf, all flour and sugar and shortening. I gotta warn you though; Cosette’s Tribe made me mad, and it also made me cry. I’m proud that The Blotter Magazine was able to award the 2011 Laine Cunningham Novel Award for such a book.
