Overview
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. . . and creates real, multidimensional and affecting characters.
"The Washington Post"
The whole novel . . . rings with truth.
