2 A.M. at the Cat’s Pajamas by Marie-Helene Bertino Out Now

Madeleine Altimari is the central character in this wonderful novel.  She is young girl who has recently lost her mother and whose father is so consumed in his grief he can’t see beyond it.  Madeleine’s dream is to sing as her mother did, but life is making it hard for her to make her dream come true.  She gets into a fight with a bully on December 23rd and is expelled and sent home which will set in motion a series of events that will bring all the characters together at 2 A.M. on Christmas Eve for a magical moment.  A touching read that reminds us that our life is not as distant from the lives of others as we might think it is.
