Teeny Little Grief Machines
Linda Oatman High
Like watching a movie frame by frame, we watch Lexi is come unglued in this novel in verse. She’s alienated from school and family. Her father is in the county jail. She cannot connect with her chain-smoking step-mom. Her brother, Blaine, is trapped in his own autistic world. And her infant sister’s death has sent her into a spiral of grief and rebellion. Bright, witty, and irreverent, Lexi tries to navigate the rocky transition from adolescent to young woman.
