About the Book
Eighty-year-old Mimi hasn’t lost her marbles, she just can’t tell you where they are. Having gradually lost the ability to speak, Mimi now can only say, “No.” Even when she means ‘yes.’ She’s happy enough to spend her remaining days with her daughter Lily and her teenage grandson Todd. After all, who else could understand her? When a forgotten lunch results in a fire, Mimi’s family is at odds with how to care for her. Will the Shady Acres nursing home be her last stop, or will another solution be found?
