It takes a lot of stories to make a neighborhood. New neighbors add their tales, families multiply, and death subtracts. But dividing by zero might blow it all apart unless a little child can lead them.
Meet Troy, the garage mechanic’s son, Lydia, the rich man’s daughter, Amethyst with her remarkable cat, and the curiously accented Andrea. Old Abigail knows more than anyone else but doesn’t speak. Meanwhile in Paradise Park, a middle-aged man keeps watch over autistic Amelia, who keeps getting lost. Pastor Bill mends people; Peter mends cars. And someone or something’s going to break.

For me, this book's greatest strength lies in the complex characters that the author has created. We see the world as they see it, we feel their pain and anguish. We share tender moments with them and we share scary ones. There is a lot of depth to this story and it stays with you long after you've read it. I would challenge anyone to walk away from this book unaffected by it. Thoroughly recommended.
