With a cold and beautiful mother obsessed with the deaths of tragic female figures (Grace Kelly, Princess Di) and a much older father who works often and barely speaks, little Claudia can't help but question her place in such a lonely and melancholy world. Her childlike approach to try and win her mother's fickle affections swings like a pendulum between hope and devastation over and over again throughout this slim sucker punch of a book.
