Abstract:

"Fifteen-year-old Rose is trying to make sense of her family. When her mother - a beautiful woman admired for her signature stiletto heels and gleaming, synthetic blond wig - fails to return home from work one summer evening, Rose is convinced that her mother must be in danger." "Unable to cope with the possibility of being abandoned, Rose hides high above the city on her apartment's rooftop, where her only companions include her pet rabbits and her sixty-five-year-old best friend, Mrs. Isis. While her father, Mr. Loyal, suspiciously carries on with his life, in no hurry to contact the police, and attends to the circus that may or may not even exist, Rose's vivid imagination shifts into overdrive." "As Rose pieces together snippets of remembered conversations, clues from newspapers, and the half-truths adults feed her, she concocts her own romantic narrative about her mother's past and disappearance, constructing a fantasy world in order to escape the reality that is unraveling before her."--book jacket.
