Staff Reviews


Heidi is about twelve; she doesn’t know when her actual birthday is, doesn’t know who her father is, doesn’t know how she and her mentally disabled mother ended up at the door of her apartment twelve years ago, and doesn’t know how the electric and rent bills are paid. What she does know is that Bernie, the neighbor whose apartment connects to theirs, is agoraphobic but has managed to love and care for Heidi and her mother beautifully. When her mom adds “soof” to her limited vocabulary and Heidi discovers a roll of old photos, she embarks on a journey to New York to discover her story. So tender and beautiful that you will not be able to close these characters into the covers of a finished book, So B. It is a story of love and its incredible power. The movie adaptation is great too!
