Publisher's Summary

Nine-year-old David has recently lost his mother to a freak accident, his salesman father is constantly on the road, and he is letting his anger out on his grandmother. Sarcastic and bossy 13-year-old Primrose lives with her childlike, fortuneteller mother, and a framed picture is the only evidence of the father she never knew. Despite their differences, David and Primrose forge a tight yet tumultuous friendship, eventually helping each other deal with what is missing in their lives.

This powerful, quirky novel about two very complicated, damaged children has much to say about friendship, loss, and recovery.

Chapters in Audible don't match book chapters

What disappointed you about Eggs?

The chapters in the Audible table of contents didn't match the chapters in the (paper) book, or the chapter numbers spoken n the reading. Many actual chapters were within one Audible chapter.
