Praise for this book
"Mommy Deadest is first rate! Marcy's writing is fresh and unpretentious, and she knows how to weave a great story. Add to the mix a quirky St. Louis setting and a budding romance between Meg and the mercurial Lindstrom, and you've got a perfect recipe to make a cold winter's night sizzle!" - Ellen Hart
