內容簡介

被讚譽為與福克納、哈波‧李(Nelle Harper Lee)、歐康諾(Flannery O'Connor)等名家齊名之作

我們坐在屋頂破了洞的小閣樓裡,直到暴雨漸漸緩和為細雨。 
我們在外婆的閣樓裡緊緊相擁,試著藉以取暖,但卻沒有用。 
我們就像是一堆濕冷的廢柴、一片廢墟中的殘骸。 

颶風來襲前夕,伊絲琪的父親開始感到焦慮,因為原本不堪一擊的家園似乎即將遭到摧毀。因為這個家,母親在生下小弟時難產而逝,父親酗酒不振,什麼也不會,家裡的四個孩子,凡事只能靠自己。然而他們家根本窮到沒什麼能準備。 

更糟的是,伊絲琪近來什麼東西也吃不下。 

她發現自己懷孕了,但卻沒法跟別人商量,因為媽媽已經去世了,爸爸整天喝得醉醺醺,而兩個哥哥之中,努力撐著這個家的大哥,在擔心著家裡沒錢讓他進籃球營,他也就沒機會拿到獎學金進入大學。二哥則是把全部心思都放在他心愛的鬥牛犬身上,不僅與父親關係惡劣,與其他家人也不太互動。最小的弟弟年僅六歲,總是渴求著未曾謀面的媽媽…… 

隨著颶風逼近,這些沒有母親的孩子們,以他們之間僅存的一點點愛,彼此倚靠,重新認識彼此,並且再度緊緊相繫,一起面對即將到來的崩毀…… 

這是一個關於親情之愛以及家人團結抵抗逆境的感人故事,同時也描繪了貧窮人家所面對的殘酷、嚴苛、孤寂與痛苦。

A hurricane is building over the Gulf of Mexico, threatening the coastal town of Bois Sauvage, Mississippi, and Esch's father is growing concerned. He's a hard drinker, largely absent, and it isn't often he worries about the family. Esch and her three brothers are stocking up on food, but there isn't much to save. Lately, Esch can't keep down what food she gets; at fifteen, she has just realized that she's pregnant. Her brother Skeetah is sneaking scraps for his prized pit bull's new litter, dying one by one. Meanwhile, brothers Randall and Junior try to stake their claim in a family long on child's play and short on parenting.

As the twelve days that make up the novel's framework yield to a dramatic conclusion, this unforgettable family - motherless children sacrificing for one another as they can, protecting

and nurturing where love is scarce - pulls itself up to face another day.
