Art tracks down her mother's crew and embarks upon an unlikely adventure,
Filled with rip-roaring adventure and laugh-out-loud scenarios, this novel should be savored like a rich dessert. The humor occasionally ventures on the farcical but doesn't lessen the emotional impact of this story. Readers will find themselves searching out the tiny details that make the world-building here so charming, and Lee's facility with language makes each page a pleasure.
