Product description

Review

"Cannon's intense specificity captures a world in amber, permitting intimate access to the pantries, gardens, and garages of Britain's past... a microcosm rife with tiny extraordinaries... Cannon is a mapmaker; her stories create an atlas... As in George Perec's Life: A User's Manual, the secrets of each household come to light."--Samantha Hunt "The New York Times Book Review "

"This cautionary tale of a suburban power struggle is charming and truthful, at once ambitious and intimate, with playful prose that reveals an intriguing mind at work."--James Hannah, author of The A to Z of You and Me

"Reminiscent of Scout Finch with shades of Flavia de Luce, 10-year-olds Grace and Tilly spend the sweltering summer of 1976 investigating two mysteries... Quirky characters, playful language and humor offset the tension. The child detectives may have gotten themselves into more than they bargained for, but their adventure leads their street toward closer community and the novel to an upbeat conclusion."--Cheryl Krocker McKeon "Shelf Awareness "

"A masterfully constructed plot... This understated, somewhat quirky debut novel is remarkable for its structure, characterizations, pitch-perfect prose, touches of humor, and humanity. Cannon is an author to watch."

--Michele Leber "Booklist (starred review) "

"A fabulous first novel... laced with wonderful, wonderful touches of humor, including an absolutely priceless scene where Tilly and Grace make one of their regular trips to the library and are looking for something good to read. I loved this book. It's one of those books that you just want to give to everybody." --Nancy Pearl on NPR's Morning Edition
