But even Groovys thoughtfully--planned menus wont fix the things that start to go wrong the year she turns eleven--suddenly, her father is in jail, her best friends long-absent mother reappears, and the swallows that make their annual migration to her hometown arrive surprisingly early. As Groovy begins to expect the unexpected, she learns about the importance of forgiveness, understands the complex stories of the people around her, and realizes that even an earthquake cant get in the way of a family that needs to come together. Kathryn Fitzmaurices lovely debut novel is distinctively Californian in its flavor. Her rich characters and strong sense of place feel both familiar and fresh at first meeting--and worth revisiting, again and again.
