Recommended to me by K, this is a beautiful tale about a young girl whose family is weighed down by grief, and the lengths that girl will go to to show her mother love and earn her mother’s approval. It’s more serious than K’s usual fare, and that’s all to the good. (There’s nothing wrong with cotton candy, but I don’t think it should become a staple of our diet.) At any rate, this is a good story, well told. Definitely worth reading (and it takes no time at all if you’re used to adult-length novels).
