Blue Light Hours by Bruna Dantas Lobato

Staff Pick

In this short novel Lobato shows us what it means to mother and be mothered; how it feels, for instance, to sit for hours on Skype with nothing new to say, just to be in each other's company--it's the perpetual unfinished business of having a mom! I felt like I was right there on campus with our protagonist, drinking tea and editing papers in the blue light of the computer she comes to think of as her mother's "aquarium." This book was truly heartrending from start to finish.
