Summary: I loved this even more than Joshilyn Jackson’s previous books, for it’s great geek culture and heart-warming but realistic moments.

Leia Birch Briggs has a lot on her plate. Right after finding she’s pregnant after a one night stand at a comic convention, she discovers that her always dependable step-sister has been hiding a crumbling marriage, while her grandmother has been hiding her worsening dementia. “Just when Leia thinks she’s got it all under control, she learns that illness is not the only thing [her grandmother]’s been hiding. Tucked in the attic is a dangerous secret with roots that reach all the way back to the Civil War. Its exposure threatens the family’s freedom and future, and it will change everything about how Leia sees herself and her sister, her son and his missing father, and the world she thinks she knows.” (source) Read more »
