Description

Philip Beard's stunning debut novel is fifteen-year-old Tess DeNunzio's 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 naIve, 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 protagonist's anguish simply and sensitively...?nd creates real, multidimensional and affecting characters." -The Washington Post "The whole novel...?ings with truth." -The Buffalo News
