Hometown: North Sterns, New York, in the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains.Best Friend: Sally Hobart.Favorite Activity: Making lists.Eddie Beckey makes lists for just about everything and everyone in her life. And for matters of real importance, she wears (and snaps) an array of colored rubber bands on her wrist. Unfortunately, the world is not always so orderly and knowable. No list can help her cope with what?s happening to her best friend, Sally ? or change the course of things for Sally?s grandmother, whom Eddie has grown to love and depend on as well. With subtlety and insight, novelist Alison McGhee tells the story of a young girl?s first encounter with grief, and of the enduring power of friendship.Alison McGhee is the author of three critically acclaimed novels for adults, SHADOW BABY, a TODAY SHOW Book Club selection, RAINLIGHT, and WAS IT BEAUTIFUL? She is also the author of a picture book, COUNTDOWN TO KINDERGARTEN, illustrated by Harry Bliss. She says, "Recently I went through a rubber band phase, in which I wore several on my wrist at all times and snapped them in an effort to retrain myself out of a couple of bad habits. Sadly, the bad habits remained ? but happily, SNAP was born."Sally Hobart is my best friend. Here is a partial list of what I know about Sally:Name: Sally Wilmarth Hobart.Favorite smell: Wood smoke.Favorite kind of cheese: Limburger.Favorite season: Spring.Favorite color: White.Best friend: Eddie Beckey.Favorite food: Chocolate-covered sprinkle doughnuts from the bakery at the back of Jewell?s Groceries. I know so much else about Sally: her favorite books, the contents of her locker, the fact that on cheese pizza day she will buy, instead of bring, her lunch. Her preferred Monopoly piece, the only piece she will play with? The dog, because she?s always wanted one. She used to suck her thumb but forced herself to stop. Her favorite class is earth science. Favorite body of water? The meander that twists its way through the meadow below her house. Favorite place in the world? The Cabin, where every summer we go camping. I could make a list of everything I know about Sally. But I wouldn?t because Sally says that my lists are "spontaneity crushers."* * *Willie says that Sally is a sugar fiend. "Sally," Willie says, "consider the cave children. Did they wake up in the morning craving chocolate-covered sprinkle doughnuts?" "Cave children probably ate bloody chunks of raw meat for breakfast," Sally says. "And they lived in caves. I?d rather live in a house and eat sprinkle doughnuts." Willie thinks of herself as an anti-sugarist. Given a choice between salty and sweet, Sally?s grandmother ? Willie ? will choose salty every time. That?s why she prefers crackers over cookies. She bakes them herself. She rolls the cracker dough out thin on a cookie sheet and pricks it all over with a fork. After the dough is baked, when it?s brown and cool, she breaks it into pieces. She bakes all kinds of crackers: cracked-pepper Parmesan, plain soda, Vermont cheddar with maple syrup. Sometimes I look up cracker. Brand NEW unread book. Hard cover bound book.
