Bokens första mening:
I think Bill is in love with Mrs Peck, I confide to an undersized blue swimmer crab that has become all tangled up in my line.
A girl called Tom.
A flood that has taken the lives of her parents and sister.
A guy called Bill, who has let her down.
A grandmother who knows her secret.
A good friend called Jonah, and a little catfish called Sarah.
And the Minnow.
Tom survived a devastating flood that claimed the lives of her sister and parents. Now she lives with Bill in his old shed by the lake. But it’s time to move out—Tom is pregnant with Bill’s baby.
Jonah lets her move in with him. Mrs Peck gives her the Fishmaster Super Series tackle box. Nana is full of gentle good advice and useful sayings.
And in her longing for what is lost, Tom talks to fish: Oscar the carp in the pet shop, little Sarah catfish who might be her sister, an unhelpful turtle in a tank at the maternity ward. And the minnow.
En fascinerande, stark & vackert skriven historia!!!
