Review: Rabbit Cake

Rabbit Cake Rabbit Cake by Annie Hartnett
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Elvis Babbitt is a quirky, precocious, and lovable narrator. Trying to find some sense of understanding after her mom's unexpected death (she drowned while sleepwalking), Elvis' "grief chart" just doesn't always seem to fit the bill. How can she grieve when her older sister Lizzie's sleepwalking has evolved into sleep-eating and so much more. Her dad is not much help since he's taken to wearing her mom's silk bathrobe and her favorite shade of lipstick. Elvis' innocence and humor lead her on a journey through grief that's heartbreaking, hilarious, and filled with hope.
