    1987. There’s only one person who has ever truly understood fourteen-year-old June Elbus, and that’s her uncle, the renowned painter Finn Weiss. Shy at school and distant from her older sister, June can only be herself in Finn’s company; he is her godfather, confidant, and best friend. So when he dies, far too young, of a mysterious illness her mother can barely speak about, June’s world is turned upside down. But Finn’s death brings a surprise acquaintance into June’s life - someone who will help her to heal....

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I enjoyed the story and its themes. It brought me back to a time when I was a young woman. That said, I just couldn't stomach the narrator. She was so flat and lifeless. I just got a recommendation from Audible for another book I might enjoy, which is probably true, except that Amy Rubinate is the narrator. I'll skip that one!

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Dick Hill must have been chosen solely for his ability to perform a Cajun accent for the male protagonist. Beyond that, all of his characters sound like complete dolts, especially the heroine. Every sentence Dick speaks on her behalf makes it sound like she just got done drinking a double. It is insulting to women.
