The critically acclaimed author of Mosquitoland brings us another batch of unforgettable characters in this New York Times bestselling tragicomedy about first love and devastating loss. 

Victor Benucci and Madeline Falco have a story to tell.

It begins with the death of Vic’s father.
It ends with the murder of Mad’s uncle.
The Hackensack Police Department would very much like to hear it.

1. A coded mission to scatter ashes across New Jersey.
2. The momentous nature of the Palisades in winter.
3. One dormant submarine.
4. Two songs about flowers.
5. Being cool in the traditional sense.
6. Sunsets & ice cream & orchards & graveyards.
7. Simultaneous extreme opposites.
8. A narrow escape from a war-torn country.
9. A story collector.
10. How to listen to someone who does not talk.
11. Falling in love with a painting.

Al Massey ,

For the love of characters

How do you find a few words to accurately describe the complexities of a multiple thousands of words book? This book was written with the beautiful language of a John Green novel, but took the storyline much closer to home. Every teenager can relate to this tale despite the fact that not all teens have lost both parents. As shown by the story character counts the most and I must say I have fallen in love. I had to listen to both Coming Up Roses and Flower Duet after. Just as beautiful as I hope (though I was somewhat biased ;) )
