In one stroke, Ashe has lost both his brother and his mother. He moves into the shed outside her window and over the months, tries a number of ways to coax her from her solitude. Eventually, she leaves her bedroom and takes him on a harrowing journey through Death Valley where he learns about her troubled past and, in the process, tries to come to terms with her. This a confident and haunting novel told from the point of view of a fourteen-year-old boy, a voice that engages us powerfully and compels us to find out how he can possibly come to terms with his terrible loss that has shattered his world and turned his mother against herself.
