Mary Stolz in an excellent writer for older teens, and this book explores what happens to Orin and his family when his mother is killed. Orin is an incredibly well drawn character and his feelings and those of his father and brother are well written. Written for older teens, but I read it as adult and found it very excellent--in fact, I think almost all of Mary Stoz's books are worthwhile and I seek them out in used bookstores or libraries, though a few have been reprinted. Recommended for anyone who wants a good story.

Mary Stolz first gives fourteen-year-old Orin Woodward an idyllic family life: home is a rustic, unworked farm; Father a journalist who reads poetry aloud; brother Victor a delightfully grave youngster fascinated by snakes and bugs; his mother, Rose, a lover of plants and word play and given to watching the moon through binoculars. No sooner is all this established, than it is shattered by a freak auto accident that leaves Orin's mother dead - ""thrown to the side of the road like a woodchuck, or a dog"" - and plunges his father into alcoholism. The shock and numbness.

The events of his mother's death and his father's resultant alcoholism descend upon 14-year-old Orin Woodward. This strong-willed, intelligently thoughtful youngster assesses the events that have catapulted him into an adult dimension, and takes charge of the household and his precociously effervescent brother as best he can. Orry engages hope, snares it and wrestles it home.
