Mouthing the Words

"Moving and comic at once. . . . Hallucinatory, hilarious, and haunting." --Boston Globe

Thelma is six years old, and life at home is unsettling and disturbing. When her family moves from England to Canada, she encounters potential parents to replace her deeply flawed pair and even makes some friends, but mostly she lives in the fertile, extraordinarily vivid, and skewed world of her own imagination. Reminiscent of Jeanette Winterson and Sylvia Plath, and by turns harrowing and wonderfully funny, Mouthing the Words is the remarkable first novel from bestselling author Camilla Gibb.
