Mimi's life is off the rails since the sudden loss of her mother. What will it take to pull her and her family together? A spot-on, witty, and genuinely moving novel. One hundred and forty-nine days ago, Mimi's mam died. Everyone's given up. Dad keeps burning pizzas, and he doesn't smile anymore. Sally wears only black now and has a terrible secret. Conor plays the drums all night and keeps the neighbors awake. The dog, Sparkler, hasn't been walked in months. And that's not even counting how terrible things are at school. But Mimi isn't one to give up. In his solo novel debut, John Newman has crafted a story both touching and comic-- a portrait of loss, compassion, and the power that comes from sticking together.
