Rabbit Cake Cover Image
ISBN: 9781941040560
Availability: Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
Published: Tin House Books - March 7th, 2017

Don't let the cover fool you - yes, there are cute rabbits in this story (approxiamtely 1003), but this absurdist story of grief and recovery will have you sobbing and in fits of laughter by the end. Told from the perspective of ten year old Elvis Babbit after the unexpected loss of her mother - I have never read a story that so perfectly captures what it feels like to be young and in a world that you have no control over.
