Rate this:
Vincent Appleton smiles at his daughters, raises a gun, and blows off his head. For the Appleton sisters, life had unravelled many times before. This time it explodes. Eight-year-old Hariet, known as Ari, is dispatched to Cape Breton and her Aunt Mary, who is purported to eat little girls. But Mary and her partner, Nia, offer an unexpected refuge for Ari and her steadfast companion, Jasper an imaginary seahorse. The respite does not last, and Ari is torn from her aunts and forced back to Toronto. Coming of age in the sexual revolution and drug culture of the 1960s, Ari struggles with her father's legacy and her mother's addictions. Testing limits with substances that numb and men who show her kindness, Ari spins through a chaotic decade of loss and love, the devilish and divine, with wit, tenacity, and the astonishing balance unique to seahorses.
