Struggling to deal with the pain of her parents' impending divorce, fifteen-yearold Sara is facing a world of unknowns and uncertainties. Unfortunately, the one person she could always lean on when things got hard, her beloved grandmother Bibi jan, has become a mere echo of her former vibrant self. And so Sara retreats into the family business, hoping a summer working on her mom's latest home renovation project will provide a distraction from her fracturing world. But the house is not just a structure made of plaster and stone. It holds secrets that have Sara clinging desperately to the memories of her old life. Secrets that only her Bibi jan could have untangled. Secrets Sara is powerless to ignore as the dark truths of her family's history rise in ghostly apparitions—and with them, the realization that as much as she wants to hold on to her old life, nothing will ever be the same. Told in lush, sweeping prose, this is a breathtaking journey into the grief that lingers through generations of immigrant families, and what it means to confront the ghosts of your past.
