Violi's heartfelt and funny debut novel is a story of transformation--how one girl learns to grieve and say goodbye, turn loss into a gift, and let herself be exceptional . . . at loving, applying lipstick to corpses, and finding life in the wake of death.
This was a very sweet novel, of finding out who you are, and where your place is. It was a little over the map, and things were slightly underdeveloped, like the relationship, and some of the secondary characters, but the writing was engaging, and I really enjoyed reading this book. Plus, it came out on my birthday!
