Dancing at the Pity Party

ISBN
9780525553021
Part poignant cancer memoir and part humorous reflection on a motherless life, this debut graphic novel is extraordinarily comforting and engaging. From before her mother's first oncology appointment through the stages of her cancer to the funeral, sitting shiva, and afterward, when she must try to make sense of her life as a motherless daughter, Tyler Feder tells her story in this graphic novel that is full of piercing--but also often funny--details. She shares the important post-death firsts, such as celebrating holidays without her mom, the utter despair of cleaning out her mom's closet, ending old traditions and starting new ones, and the sting of having the "I've got to tell Mom about this" instinct and not being able to act on it. This memoir, bracingly candid and sweetly humorous, is for anyone struggling with loss who just wants someone to get it.Binding Type: HardcoverAuthor: Tyler FederPublisher: Dial BooksPublished: 04/14/2020ISBN: 9780525553021Pages: 208Weight: 1.30lbsSize: 9.10h x 6.10w x 0.90dReview Citations: School Library Journal 02/01/2020 pg. 94Kirkus Reviews 02/01/2020Publishers Weekly 02/24/2020Bulletin of Ctr for Child Bks 04/01/2020 - Book Of Special Distinction
