Chosen by Sabrina

"This book is relatively new, from 2013. I won't say too much about it, but from the beginning you know that it is about a family whose lives have been dramatically changed by a particular event without knowing what that event is, especially Ava, the central character. I chose the book because I thought it was really beautiful, hopeful and moving. It's been described as 'simultaneously critical social commentary, ghost story, murder mystery, and queer love story'. The author is a lesbian and the book has a lesbian theme. I was really pleased that I stumbled across this book and I hope you enjoy it too."
