Governor General's Literary Awards: Text 1998, Short-listed

Terence isn't cool like his best friend, Tom, but at least he's not a weirdo like Lucy, who sees life upside-down and thinks she's a bat. Yet Lucy knows things that other people don't -- about the gaps in life, and seeing things more clearly with your eyes closed, and how you have to learn to fly on your own if you want to survive.

Sarah Withrow has penned a startling novel about extraordinary Lucy, who believes she's a bat, and ordinary Terence, who believes in believing.

Sarah Withrow is the author of What Gloria Wants, The Black Sunshine of Goody Pryne, Box Girl and Bat Summer, which was shortlisted for a Governor General's Award and has been published in seven countries. She also writes short stories for adults, which have been published in The Fiddlehead Review, The Malahat Review, The New Quarterly and Descant. Sarah lives in Kingston, Ontario.
