Such a strange, haunting tale. Three siblings have to fend for themselves after they decide NOT to reveal the death of both their parents. The oldest is still in her mid-teens, and so chaos ensues as you might expect. Far from being a comedy, though, this book is full of dark humor and a fresh look at the triumphs and pitfalls of family relationships.
