    *Starred Review* When Ana Torres dies falling out of her bedroom window, her three younger sisters are left adrift. Trapped by the watchful eyes of their San Antonio neighborhood and the violence of their widowed father's grief, each responds in her own way. Jessica, now the oldest and propelled by rage, tries to become her sister, wearing Ana's clothes and dating the boy people say Ana was sneaking out to meet. Iridian, the middle sister, fades into herself, writing incessantly in notebooks. Rosa, the youngest, searches for signs in church and in the animals of the neighborhood. A year after Ana's death, a ghost arrives in the Torres house, bringing with it a reckoning for all three sisters and everyone in their lives. Mabry, whose All the Wind in the World (2017) was longlisted for the National Book Award, keeps her narrative tightly focused on intimate character study. Most of the action takes place over only a week, and the point of view shifts between the individual sisters and, in chapters whose style echoes Jeffrey Eugenides' The Virgin Suicides (1993), the collective perspective of a group of neighborhood boys. Borrowing elements of magical realism and Latinx folklore, this is a story that is often uncomfortable; in its quest to explore grief, family, and the traumas inflicted by each, it lays its characters utterly and unforgettably bare.
