Description
Ida grew up with Jackson and James--where there was "I" there was a "J." She's just always had them around. While the world outside saw them as friends, to each other they formed a family unit, not drawn from blood but from a deep need to fill a void in their single-parent households. Theirs was a relationship of communication without speaking, understanding without judgment, intimacy without rules. But as the three mature, Ida and Jackson become more than just siblings. When Jackson's somnambulism produces violent outbursts and James is hospitalized, Ida is paralyzed by the events that threaten to shatter her family.

display_description "Two brothers, James and Jackson, have conversations in their sleep and their sister Ida listens in. While the world outside saw them as neighbors and friends, to each other the three formed a family unit--two brothers and a sister--not drawn from blood, but drawn from a deep need to fill a void in their single-parent households. Theirs is a relationship of communication without speaking, of understanding without judgment, of intimacy without rules and limits. But as the three of them mature and emotions become more complex, Ida and Jackson find themselves as more than just siblings. And when Jackson's somnabulance develops into violent outbursts and James is hospitalized, Ida is paralyzed by the events that threaten to shatter her family and to pull them beyond her reach. Kathleen Alcott's striking debut, The Dangers of Proximal Alphabets, is a charged and deeply layered love story that explores the dynamics of family when it defies bloodlines and societal conventions"-- Provided by publisher.
