Publisher's Summary

When high school senior Paul Wagoner walks into his school library with a stolen gun, he threatens his girlfriend Emily Beam, then takes his own life. In the wake of the tragedy, an angry and guilt-ridden Emily is shipped off to boarding school in Amherst, Massachusetts, where she encounters a ghostly presence who shares her name. The spirit of Emily Dickinson and two quirky girls offer helping hands, but it is up to Emily to heal her own damaged self.
This inventive story, told in verse and in prose, paints the aftermath of tragedy as a landscape where there is good behind the bad, hope inside the despair, and springtime under the snow.

Critic Reviews

"Teasing out strands of the past and the present, Hubbard masterfully twines together a story of one girl’s journey to self-identity.... As graceful as a feather drifting down, this lyrical story delivers a deep journey of healing on a tragic theme." (Kirkus)
"This novel is accomplished, polished, and mixes prose and and poetry to stunning effect.... Hubbard’s narrative tone will only make readers want to lean in closer." (Booklist)
"Hubbard’s writing is elegant and emotional.... Mature readers who enjoy a bit of melancholy and might spark to Dickinson will be in good company on Emily’s journey." (Publishers Weekly)
