Lucy’s grandmother, a potter, is experiencing early signs of dementia which is frightening both to her and to Lucy who does not know whether to share this information with her parents or to hide the situation in order to preserve the happy times she enjoys at Grams’ cabin.
The Last Best Days of Summer introduces a girl who is growing in self knowledge and is on her way to becoming a sensitive, loving adult.
As in her novel, Defiance, Hobbs here shows a young person wrestling with a problem, aided by wise adults, and in the end making informed personal choices.
