Rabbit Cake (Paperback)
"Annie Hartnett’s debut novel, Rabbit Cake, is a truly unique tale told through the eyes of 12-year-old Elvis, who is trying to make sense of the sleep-swimming death of her mother. While Elvis seeks to explain her loss through medical texts, her sister’s sleepwalking becomes out of control, and her father grieves by wearing his wife’s belongings.Through it all the Babbit family attempts to save one another as they try to heal. Rabbit Cake is an exploration of life, death, and how grief can tear a family apart, and put them back together. This debut is smart, dark comedy that you won’t be able to put down."--Reviewed by Susan— From Susan Recommends
