Summary

''Lois-Ann Yamanaka tells the bittersweet story of the Ogatas, a ragtag family of orphans reeling from the death of their mother, trying to stay together in the face of tremendous odds. There is Ivah, the big ''sista,'' who at the tender age of thirteen struggles to take care of the family, knowing in her heart that she must loosen the ties that bind; Maisie, the youngest daughter, who hasn't spoken in months and finds solace only in the cradle of her home or in the company of her dog, Ka-san; Poppy, who works nights as a school janitor and frequently blames his children for his wife's untimely passing when he isn't blaming himself for the secret which will always haunt him; and Blu, irrepressible, a young boy trying to hang on to a world slipping out of his reach, and whose need to be loved invites the most insidious of relationships.''--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
