Product Description:

One sultry summer's day, teenage Nico and her vivacious older sister Margaret take a boat out on the lake by their family home. But when Margaret dives in, and doesn't resurface, Nico realizes with horror that her sister is lost to the watery depths for ever. While her parents drift toward their own risky consolations, Nico searches for solace and security in books, art, and - recklessly - in a fledgling relationship with Margaret's boyfriend. Heartrending and intense, Goldengrove follows a girl on the cusp of adulthood during a summer when a death changes her life for ever.

Review:

"'A quiet, clear-eyed, sun-dappled eulogy to lost youth, and a youth lost... A quietly devastating portrait of a grieving family' Elle 'Beautifully wrought... Blossoms into a smart, gimlet-eyed account of what 13-year-old Nico sees happening around her after the loss of the more alluring, glamorous and manipulative Margaret... Effortless narrative verve.' Janet Maslin, New York Times 'With a dazzling mix of directness and metaphor, Prose captures the centrifugal and isolating force of grief... A moving meditation on how, out of the painful passing of innocence and youth, sexuality and identity can miraculously emerge.' Los Angeles Times 'Prose is at her very best.' Washington Post"
