Abstract:

Jas, a girl whose brother's death punctures the routines of her devout farming family. In the vacuum of their parents' own unraveling, Jas and her siblings develop a curiosity about death that leads them into increasingly disturbing rituals and fantasies.

"I asked God if he please couldn't take my brother Matthies instead of my rabbit. 'Amen.' Ten-year-old Jas has a unique way of experiencing her universe: the feeling of udder ointment on her skin as protection against harsh winters; the texture of green warts, like capers, on migrating toads; the sound of 'blush words' that aren't in the Bible. But when a tragic accident ruptures the family, her curiosity warps into a vortex of increasingly disturbing fantasies - unlocking a darkness that threatens to derail them all"--FantasticFiction.com.
