SELECTION - The Globe & Mail 100 Best Books of 2014 PRAISE FOR The ACB With Honora Lee "De Goldi's story of an only child's determined efforts to know and love her grandmother deserves a place in the pantheon of quiet, word-of-mouth classics . . . Perry is funny and bewitching, and all of the other characters, even the walk-ons, are equally engaging. O'Brien's curious diagram-illustrations pay appropriate tribute to Perry's admiration for the unconventional." --Starred Review, Publishers Weekly "Clever, poignant and sweetly funny, this will be especially appreciated by those who've experienced a loved one with dementia." --Kirkus Reviews "This is not a predictable tale of hands-across-the-generations--there is no treacle in it, no weepy climax--but a portrait of an understanding heart and an exploration of the natural craving for order, however eccentric it turns out to be." --The Wall Street Journal
