About the book:

In Terrace Story, Annie, Edward, and their daughter find a beautiful terrace hidden in the closet of their cramped apartment. But every bit of extra space has a hidden cost, and the terrace sets of a seismic chain of events, forever changing the shape of the world. Terrace Story is a mediation on loss, a reverie about extinction, and a map for where to go next.
