Comments  Summary  Reviews  Author Notes

Summary: "Make Believe is the story of a family stunned by tragedy and the regenerative forces at work in the aftermath. At the center of the novel is three-year-old Bo, a boy who has been orphaned by the car accident that killed his mother. Bo becomes the focus of a fierce custody struggle between his two sets of very different grandparents. As the grown-ups play out their secret desires, hidden resentments, and stubborn selfrighteousness, Bo finds himself at the mercy of the fallible adult world. Whom should he trust? What should he believe? With a child's perfect but partial understanding, he flees into himself - away from the sea of strangers - where he inhabits a vivid inner landscape filled with the dreamlike intensity unique to the imagination of a child." "Moving between the points of view of Bo and members of his family, Make Believe explores the vulnerability of a child's developing consciousness, the profound interconnectedness of even the most imperfect humans, and the imagination with which all human beings invent their worlds."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
