Rabbit Cake is a beautiful, very smart, heartbreaking but also funny debut novel about a 12 year old girl grieving the loss of her mother, after her death while sleepwalking (actually, sleepswimming). Left behind are Elvis, the protagonist, her older sister Lizzie (who has inherited her mom's dangerous sleepwalking tendency), and their dad. Elvis's narration achieves a remarkable, believable balance of youth and insight, humor and grief, as she tries to make sense of something that doesn't make sense at all.
Elvis Babbitt has a head for the facts: she knows science proves yellow is the happiest color, she knows a healthy male giraffe weighs about 3,000 pounds, and she knows that the naked mole rat is the longest living rodent. She knows she should plan to grieve her mother, who has recently drowned while sleepwalking, for exactly eighteen months.
