- Finalist, Literary (Adult Fiction)
In this twist on the traditional coming-of-age story, Fleur Robins tells of her quixotic attempts to save her beloved grandfather in a household devoted to saving babies from "the devil abortionists." Is Fleur autistic or gifted? Her penchant for pinching and flapping, fondness for fanciful word play, and preoccupation with God, the void, and quantum physics thrust her into the center of a culture war over the reach and limits of the human imagination.
