Growing up with his atheist astrophyicist mother, Lucy, thirteen-year-old Nic Delano is beginning to ask a lot of questions about the meaning of life, and his mother does not like the answers he has been getting from his friends, a group of devout Christians, until unexpected tragedy strikes, and both of their beliefs are put to the test. Original.

Blackwell North Amer
In the tradition of Jodi Picoult, a fresh, smart, and deeply moving novel about the power of faith, love, and family

Thirteen-year-old Nic Delano has a lot of questions. Like why does he have a babysitter at his age-and where did she get such long legs? But mostly, what exactly is the meaning of life?

His mother, Lucy, an astrophysicist and atheist, has always encouraged Nic to ask questions. But lately she doesn't like the answers he's getting. Nic has been hanging out with a group of devout Christians and is starting to embrace the Bible—and a very different view of the heavens.

But when unexpected tragedy strikes, Nic and Lucy's beliefs are truly to put to the test. And they need each other now more than ever. But will a mother and her son be able to find a common ground where faith meets understanding and love is, ultimately, what endures?
