In luminous prose Martha Witt explores the intense and private world inhabited by these siblings and the inevitable and necessary pain of their separation."Seductive. The reward of this intense read is a sister's thoughtful struggle for a way to love her sibling without losing herself."-Entertainment Weekly"Witt's riveting debut is a disturbing, accomplished novel. Wildly imaginative and intelligent. an often profound, unsettling story of children struggling to understand love, truth, and sacrifice."-Booklist "Everything you come upon seems absolutely new.
