Product description

Magic realism for teens! (If you don’t know what that is, read this and find out.) A haunting and dreamlike story where truth and fiction blur. Carol’s grandfather is sick, wandering in his mind. Carol and her parents have moved to his desert ranch to keep an eye on him. But all the heat and stress must be playing with Carol’s own head. Bees seem to be following her. Her grandfather’s past is slowly creeping into her life. And when he weaves Carol into his stories – tales of a magical healing tree and a lake – Carol sees glimpses of something special in his so-called madness…
