Lolo’s Light

This is a truth about growing up: Once in your life, sometime after your first memory but before you can drive a car, something is going to happen to you that doesn't happen to anyone else you know. It might be something good. It might be something bad, or special, or funny, or shocking. For Millie, it's something really sad. Lolo, her neighbors' infant daughter, dies unexpectedly, suddenly, inexplicably, on the night Millie babysits.

It's not Millie's fault. There's nothing she could have done. And there's nothing she can do now. So how does she go on? She does what you'll do. She finds her way.

This poignant and profound coming-of-age story portrays a tragic experience of responsibility and its poisonous flip side: guilt. For readers who love The Thing About Jellyfish and Counting By 7s, this is an honest and empathetic portrait of a girl at her most vulnerable — a mess of grief, love, and ultimately, acceptance — who must reckon with those most difficult of demons: death... and life.

Description

"Even though the sudden infant death syndrome is not her fault, Millie is transformed overnight from carefree to guilt-ridden and depressed. The only bright spot (figuratively and literally) is the warm yellow light shining from Lolo’s room. Millie swears she feels a warm electrical hum as well, although no one else seems to notice it.... Millie’s slow process through grief and guilt — with help from a family therapist — is extraordinarily well written, taking readers on the heartbreaking, difficult, and necessary journey that follows unthinkable loss." — Kirkus Reviews
