From the day that Morgan-Lee is born, her extraordinarily beautiful and withdrawn older brother, Ginx, is obsessed by her. Inhabiting their own parallel world, the two communicate through a secret language and make-believe stories; when Morgan-Lee begins to explore friendships beyond their closed circle, however, Ginx becomes increasingly disturbed. In luminous prose, Martha Witt explores the intense and private world inhabited by these siblings and the inevitable and necessary pain of their separation.
From the Publisher:

Praise

Kirkus Reviews
"Witt's first outing, told by a middle sibling, is the story of a North Carolina family, dysfunctional in touching and sometimes very amusing ways....A real wonder." 06/15/2004

Publishers Weekly
"[G]ives a droll twist to the tropes of dysfunction....[A]n unusual, uncompromising debut." 07/19/2004
