Saving Cicadas is a novel about babies: born, adopted, or unborn.
A single mother, Priscilla Lynn Macy, is having another child unexpectedly, escape seems the best solution. But before starting a new life Priscilla needs “a step back in time”: she backs to her family home, where “everybody seems to have found pieces of themselves here”, also with the help of several ghosts who will surprise you.
The narrative of the book is structured with two different points of view (eight-and-a-half year-old Janie and Grandma Mona), this narrative structure does not allow you to know what’s happening and you have to guess until the end.
This novel entertains you and may teach we are not alone: there is always someone whispering to you, because we are not “just like wind rocking … rockers”.
I recommend this book for teenagers who don’t (or don’t want) understand grownups, and grownups who are planning a new life.
Publisher has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book.
