This coming-of-age story reveals the striking pangs and promise of an adolescent girl's fitful awakening to adulthood. For 14-year-old June Elbus, the early death of her beloved uncle, artist Finn Weiss, blotted her world. When, shortly after the funeral, she was approached by another friend of the painter, she took comfort in their sharing of their loss. What followed though was unexpectedly intense. Rendered in the words of its main character, Carol Rifka Brunt's debut novel captures the subtle intricacies of human relationships and the rough smoothing of maturation. Editor's recommendation.
