Booklist Reviews 2018 March #2

Lulu Parsons is 10 years old when her mother, Bette, vanishes from the small town of Fraser Arm in British Columbia. Bette leaves behind not only Lulu but a husband and three sons, the oldest of whom, Geordie, is developmentally disabled. Their mother's absence opens a big hole, which Lulu tries to fill under the tutelage of Mr. McFee, whose wife, Alice, disappeared at the same time as Bette and who introduces Lulu to thievery, drugs, and more. McFee's baleful influence is known to one other townsperson, Doris Tenpenny, who sells eggs and whose inability to speak makes her a careful watcher. Alternating between Lulu's narrative and chapters related from Doris' point of view, Higdon's novel loops forward and back across 40 years, showing how Bette's disappearance ripples across the lives of Lulu and her family. Excessive length drains away some of the impact, but Canadian librarians in particular will want to pay attention to this debut. Copyright 2018 Booklist Reviews.
