AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Told by sassy 18-year-old Rachel, this is a suspenseful, compassionate, yet laugh-out-loud funny story about looking after a woman with brain damage - and about tasting love, finding grace and getting a life. Rachel has just left school and she knows everything. Well, maybe not quite everything. Then she meets the mysterious Mr. Preston, who gives her a live-in job looking after Grace.'
