Abstract:

A young girl struggles with her beloved brother's accidental death, her mother's depression, and fitting in at school in Fabio Genovesi's touching, funny, and imaginative new novel.

In a small town on the coast of Tuscany, Luna struggles with her beloved brother's accidental death, her mother's depression, and fitting in at school. She is considered an eccentric by her schoolmates not just because she is an albino, but because she believes her brother Luca still speaks to her through objects that wash up on the nearby shore. She befriends Zot, the new boy at school, who comes from Chernobyl and is also considered an eccentric because of the way he speaks and dresses.
