"Mourning Becomes Cassandra has some of the most well-developed characters of any contemporary novel." Chosen Top Four of 2010


One wary young widow pairs up with one bent-on-disaster teenager... Whose brilliant idea was this?

You think you've got issues. Meet Cass Ewan.

After Plan A for her life falls to pieces, she moves in with single friends from church and reluctantly decides to mentor an at-risk adolescent. Never mind that Cass knows nothing about drugs, alcohol, or criminally-minded loser boyfriends. Once Nadina, the prickly, dog-whispering 15-year-old, enters Cass's life, everything is up for grabs. There's new employment at a video game company with a charming fellow mentor. There's the unlikely friendship with her womanizing, atheist housemate Daniel, because who else can she ask about sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll? And finally there's the epiphany about her own role in the universe. Where she once considered herself a cosmic unresolved plotline, Cass finds she still has a pivotal role to play.

(Be sure to read the anticipated sequel, THE LITTLEST DOUBTS, available now!)
