Fifteen-year-old Alice dreams of her first kiss, has sleepovers, auditions for Our Town, and tries to pass high school biology. Its 1975, and at first look, her life would seem to be normal and unexceptional. But in the world that Leslie PietrzykMoreFifteen-year-old Alice dreams of her first kiss, has sleepovers, auditions for Our Town, and tries to pass high school biology. Its 1975, and at first look, her life would seem to be normal and unexceptional. But in the world that Leslie Pietrzyk paints, every moment she chronicles is revealed through the kaleidoscope of loss, stained by the fact that Alices mother, without warning, note, or apology, deliberately parks her car on the railroad tracks, in the path of an oncoming train.In the emotional year that follows, Alice and her older brother find themselves in the care of their great aunt, forced to cope and move forward.

Lonely and confused, Alice absorbs herself in her mother Annettes familiar rituals, trying to recapture their connection -- only to be stunned by the sound of her mothers voice speaking to her, engaging Alice in conversations and offering some insight into the life that she had led, beyond her role as Alices mother.
