Regular price $8.50 Sale

Philip Beards stunning debut novel is fifteen-year-old Tess DeNunzios letter to her sister, Zoe, lost to a hit-and-run driver on a day when it seemed that nothing mattered but the tragedies playing out in New York and Washington. Dear Zoe is a remarkable study of grief, adolescence, and healing with a pitch-perfect narrator who is at once sharp and naïve, world- worried and self-centered, funny and heartbreakingly honest. Tess begins her letter to Zoe as a means of figuring out her own life, her place in the world, but the result is a novel of rare power and grace that tells us much about ours. BACKCOVER: Like The Lovely Bones, [Dear Zoe] is a piercing look at how family recovers from a devastating loss. Everything about this moving, powerful debut rings true. Booklist (starred review) Beard peels away the layers of his protagonists anguish simply and sensitively. . . and creates real, multidimensional and affecting characters. The Washington Post The whole novel . . . rings with truth. The Buffalo News This 2006 Plume Books Paperback is in Good condition.
