Rabbit Cake
Rabbit Cake | Annie Hartnett
Twelve-year-old Elvis Babbitt has a head for the facts: she knows science proves yellow is the happiest color, she knows a healthy male giraffe weighs about 3,000 pounds, and she knows that the naked mole rat is the longest living rodent. She knows she should plan to grieve her mother, who has recently drowned while sleepwalking, for exactly eighteen months. But there are things Elvis doesn t yet know like how to keep her sister Lizzie from poisoning herself while sleep-eating or why her father has started wearing her mother's silk bathrobe around the house. Elvis investigates the strange circumstances of her mother's death and finds comfort, if not answers, in the people (and animals) of Freedom, Alabama. As hilarious a storyteller as she is heartbreakingly honest, Elvis is a truly original voice in this exploration of grief, family, and the endurance of humor after loss."

Pick ⭐️⭐️⭐️
Elvis, a precocious 5th grader, and her moody teenage sister are dealing with the death of their mother.
A sweet coming-of-age story that explores different ways of coping with grief.
Enjoyed it.

Wow. My 4th Bail this year. That's a record. The older I get the easier it is for me to say nope moving on. Lots of people love this book, I just wasn't in the mood for a mother who died sleep swimming. Since it's for a Book Club that I don't always attend decided to Bail. #imho

Not bad but I found parts to be unrealistic. It is a YA novel about a father and his two daughters as they cope in the aftermath of the mothers death.

I enjoyed this book narrated by Elvis, a young girl, as she attempts to come to terms with her mother‘s death. Elvis‘s voice is precocious, yet not annoying, and the story is scattered with intriguing factoids about animals, sleepwalking, and the Guinness Book of World Records. While some of the quirky references occasionally strained credibility, I learned you can, indeed, purchase coyote urine on Amazon!

arubabookwoman @collegecatlady My trip to NYC to visit new grandchild put me a little behind in finishing this since I was afraid I would lose it if I traveled with it. It will be on its way back to you tomorrow. Great choice for #lmpbc. 8mo

I‘m really enjoying getting to know 10-year old Elvis and her family as she grieves the death of her mother. It starts with a bit of #petsemetary - a burnt rabbit birthday cake 🎂 🐇 - and I‘m sure I‘m going to #howl with both laughter and tears.

It‘s also my first #readwhatyouown, after taking inspiration from @Cinfhen @valeriegeary and not ordering any more library books for the next little while 😳

I am fascinated by sleepwalking... The thought that someone can be in a #deepsleep and still eat, drive a car, and in this case, walk into a deep lake to die, terrifies me 😱 10 year old Elvis Babbitt is left to deal with the sleepwalking death of her mother while also adjusting to her mourning father and sleepeating sister. I bailed on the audio version but gave it a second chance in print and my opinion did improve slightly 🙃
#septemberdanes

What a sweet, funny, poignant story Annie Hartnett has crafted! Told from the perspective of 10/11-year-old Elvis, it‘s never too precious or mature.

Eleven year old Elvis is trying to process the death of her mom. Was it a sleepwalking accident like everyone thinks? Her older sister sleepwalks too, and Elvis and her dad are worried about her new sleep habits and behavior problems.

This is adorable and heart wrenching. It‘s a great book for animal lovers, as long as you can deal with some animal deaths. I loved it, and already know I‘ll be gifting it to some loved ones.

Definite Pick!

“We‘re all different combinations of crazy.”

What an incredible debut! I‘m attached to the little girl named Elvis, her passion for animals, and love for her sister. It‘s quirky, relatable, and emotional just like real life. This had everything I look for and more, including a striking cover. Yellow, of course, being the happiest color. 💛

Wouldn't say my earlier comparison to Shirley Jackson (specifically We Have Always Lived in the Castle) was inaccurate, only that the book transforms into something very different as it progresses. An affecting narrative of grief that is also by turns funny, bitter, and humane. Might go on a bit too long at the end, but earns it's emotions all the same.

PS - also finished Robinson, but didn't feel like doing a separate review. Was also very good.
