A powerful and redemptive novel of love and family-from the beloved bestselling author. Seventeen-year-old Rosie Ferguson is smart, athletic, and beautiful- everything her mother, Elizabeth, and stepfather, James, hoped she would be. But as the school year draws to a close, there are disturbing signs that the well-adjusted teenage life that Rosie claims to be leading is a sham. Slowly and painfully, Elizabeth and James are forced to confront the fact that Rosie has been lying to them-and that her deceptions have profound consequences for them all. "Imperfect Birds" is Anne Lamott's most honest and heartrending novel, exploring our human quest for connection and salvation as it exposes the traps that life-and we-set for ourselves.

Review quote

"Heartbreaking and delightful, moving and hopeful, "Imperfect Birds" reminds us how our children are connected to and independent of us, and that no matter how difficult our struggle is with them, love underlies it all and saves us. This novel captures the deepest, purest, most terrifying experience of parents fearing for their children. With great insight and humor, Anne Lamott shows us what it means these dangerous days to be a parent, what it means to be a child, and what it means to be a family." -David Sheff, author of "Beautiful Boy" "This is a hell of a book, tough and wonderful. A heartbreak and a heart- mender." -Martin Cruz Smith, author of "Gorky Park" and "The Golden Mile"
