A thousand secrets linger beneath the surface of the Hemmings family. Marla and Gottfried Hemmings, only a generation removed from Pennsylvania potato farmers who traded digging potatoes for developing subdivisions, now live happily with their fortune. They don’t share this wealth with their numerous children, instead wanting them to build lives for themselves. But their children and grandchildren’s resentment about this slowly, steadily grows. The far-flung Hemmings descendants gradually find their ways back to each other, just in time to learn a tragic truth about their family. Overflowing with engrossing surrealism, this winding story is a deeply meditative insight into the teenage experience. Ages 14 and up. In conversation with Petra Mayer, NPR Books Editor.
