A beautifully written debut novel that weaves together magic and reality, about a girl s relationship with her mentally ill grandfather.

This powerful debut novel delicately blurs the line between truth and fiction as Carol unravels the fantastical stories of her mentally ill grandfather. When she and her family move to his deserted ranch in order to transfer him to a care home, Carol struggles to cope with the suffocating heat and the effects of her grandfather s dementia. Bees seem to be following her around, but the drought means this is impossible. She must be imagining things. Yet when her grandfather chooses her as the subject for his stories tales of a magical healing tree, a lake, and the grandmother she never knew Carol sees glimmers of something special in what her parents dismiss as Serge s mental illness. As she rethinks her roots and what she thought she knew about her family, Carol comes to the realization that Serge s past is quickly catching up with her present. A stunning coming-of-age story.
