An affecting and effective tale of trauma and grief.

So odd. I can't competently explain what the book is abour or what happens, but it was engaging and touched my heart throughout.

This is a strange confessional memoir of a very young woman who bears a burden of guilt from the death, when they were both 4, of her next-door friend. Had she alerted adults, her friend most likely would have survived, but at 4? Old enough to remember, too young for any perspective. Her mother's entanglement with the friend's mother, and her denial that her daughter had any culpability, are the start of an intense dis-association. Told in a scaled form where she has to backtrack, denying the last page or so, and restart "with what really happened" sometimes more than once.
There are moments of astounding beauty and offhanded cruelty.

This is a good book, folks! I see many of the reviews here give Poor Deer a bad rating because it just isn't to their taste: too dark, depressing, unflinching, they say. But that is irrelevant! This book is very well written. Yes, it makes you feel a lot of painful emotions, but that just means it's well written. I recommend this book to those that enjoy a slightly twisted read.
