Kit is a typical teenager, happily engaged in school and family life, until her younger brother, Buddy, is stricken with cancer. All too soon Kit has to struggle not only with Buddy s death but also with the loss of her parents, who are consumed by their own grief. Yeomans captures both devastating loss and the beginnings of recovery in spare, lyrical verse that throbs with raw emotional power.


Ellen Yeomans:
Ellen Yeomans lives in upstate New York, where she hauls herself out of bed way too early every morning to feed the livestock at a 150-year-old farm near her home. When not tending animals, she teaches at Syracuse area colleges and writes almost daily. With two picture books to her credit, Rubber Houses is her first novel.
