Summary Lottie collects dead creatures and lovingly cares for them, hoping to preserve them, to save them from disintegration. Her father understands--Lottie has a scientific mind, he thinks. Her aunt wants it to stop, and she goes to cruel lengths to make sure it does. And her mother? Lottie's mother died long ago. And Lottie is searching for a way to be close to her. A moving and evocative verse novel about love and loss, and the way beauty can help make sense of it all.
