A debut novel, this is about finding solace in unexpected places - in works of art, in people, and in animals that the world has forgotten. Edith grows up in her big sister Vivienne's shadow. While the beautiful Viv is forced by her overbearing mother to compete In child beauty pageants, plain-looking Edith follows in her father's footsteps: collecting oddities, studying coins, reading old books. Edith accepts a job at the National Gallery of Canada and meets an elderly cryptozoologist named Theo who is searching for a bird many believe is extinct. While trying to help her sister and win over a boys heart, she develops a friendship with Theo and realizes they may have more in common than she imagined.
