Delightful queer book about grieving. After 27-year-old Maggie's mother unexpectedly dies, she leaves her first long-term girlfriend in St. Louis to return to her father and brother in SoCal for the shiva. When her family gets to be too much for her, she decides to carry out her mother's will and deliver letters to five men she's never heard of. A story that perfectly depicts the messy, illogical and emotional aftermath of the loss of a loved one, and how impossible it feels to have such a big part of your life just disappear. Also a great story of how our parents can seem so distant from us, so frustrating and impossible to understand, when in reality they're more like us than we'll ever know. -Curtis
