"A moody and unflinching examination of the gritty, tender and impossible parts of a people, that make them unforgettably whole. You don't read Samantha Mabry's books so much as experience them. Ferocious and gorgeously crafted. I loved it." - Courtney Summers, New York Times bestselling author of Sadie.
The Torres sisters dreams of escape. Escape from their needy and despotic widowed father and from their old San Antonio neighborhood, full of old San Antonio families and the old traditions and expectations that go along with them. In the summer after her senior year of high school, Ana, the eldest, falls to her death from her bedroom window. A year later, Jessica, Iridian, and Rosa are still consumed by grief and haunted by Ana's memory when strange things start happening around the house: mysterious laughter, mysterious shadows, mysterious writing on the walls. Is Ana really haunting her sisters, trying to send them a message? And what exactly is she trying to say?
In a stunning follow-up to her National Book Award-longlisted All the Wind in the World, Samantha Mabry weaves a magical, romantic novel about ferocious sisterhood.
"Move over, Louisa May Alcott! Samantha Mabry has written her very own magical Little Women for our times. This is no family of tamed girls but a clan of fierce and fighting young women who draw readers into their spell. A celebration of the bonds of sisterhood and of the ways we heal by reaching beyond our losses, our brokenness and fears to the love that holds and heals," - Julia Alvarez, author of How the Garcia Girls Lost Their Accents
