You couldnâ€²t really tell about Mamaâ€²s brain just from looking at her, but it was obvious as soon as she spoke. She had a high voice, like a little girlâ€²s, and she only knew twenty-three words. I know this for a fact, because we kept a list of the things Mama said tacked to the inside of the kitchen cabinet. Most of the words were common ones, like good and more and hot, but there was one word only my mother said, soof.
Although she lives an unconventional lifestyle with her mentally disabled mother and their doting neighbor, Bernadette, Heidi has a lucky streak that has a way of pointing her in the right direction. When a mysterious word in her motherâ€²s vocabulary begins to haunt her, Heidiâ€²s thirst for the truth leads her on a cross-country journey in search of the secrets of her past.
A dramatic tour de force by the best-selling author of Regular Guy.
