Description

A powerful new novel from the award-winning author of When Zachary Beaver Came to Town.

Isabel's mother died peacefully. At least that's what Isabel likes to think since no one will talk about the truth. But the truth has a way of revealing itself at night. Ta`Ta sleeps curled up on the floor right where Mama's body was found. Olivia wets her bed and wakes repeatedly from nightmares, and Frank starts carving his anger into his bedroom wall. It's up to Isabel to help her family get beyond the pain and loss—to be the keeper of the night. But who will be there for Isabel and help her through to the other side?

Set on the lush island of Guam, Kimberly Willis Holt has written a painfully beautiful story about a young woman's struggle to protect her family after suicide hits home.

From Publishers Weekly

Mar 28, 2005 –  "This evocative novel set in Guam traces the months following the suicide of native girl Isabel's mother," wrote PW in a starred review. "The author works magic, recreating the sights, sounds and smells of Guam and encapsulating the essence of her characters through very few words." Ages 12-up.
