Not in my opinion a totally new take on grieving but still real and clever insight into what happens when a loving family loses more than half their members.

I wanted so much to shout to the mother but you still have one child! The ending is as close to a happy conclusion as can be possible.

This is phenomenal. Similar in tone to To Come and Go Like Magic. I will admit I cried, more than once.

Daralynn, called “Dolly”, grows up during the year following the accidental death of her father and two siblings.
Her voice, earnest and unsophisticated, leads through an irreverent series of small town events as she and her mother begin to deal with their loss. This is a very unusual treatment of death and family trauma, but Klise really dos show the close relationship between tears and laughter…letting absurdly comical scenes explain deep truth. There is a little mystery and suspense to keep readers engaged until the satisfying end where we learn the meaning of “Grounded”.
