“An outstanding coming-of-age debut novel set in 1987, Brunt’s book tells the story of an eccentric 14-year-old, June Elbus, whose only friend, her Uncle Finn, dies of AIDS. A portrait Finn had painted of June and her sister ultimately receives national attention and unleashes a plethora of family secrets. June feels more alone than ever until she meets Toby, Finn’s boyfriend. Their love for Finn creates a bond between them, one that stirs family jealousies and rivalries. This book is a deeply touching portrait of a family in the wake of tragedy, and a young girl’s courage during the AIDS hysteria of the late 80s.”
