A mute stranger of indeterminate gender arouses suspicion in a Christian community in this powerful exploration of identity politics. Taken variously as or young adult, he or she the novel is agnostic about the value of such labels is found asleep in a church, unwilling or unable to answer questions about how they ended up there. Given shelter by a family of five — and named, like a dog, after the place it was found — the new lodger soon causes resentment among the children displaced as a consequence.
All the while, the clock ticks as the story takes place over a week leading up to an ominous-sounding festival for which Pew is advised to prepare there are dark hints that it involves human sacrifice. Added unease comes from news reports of civil unrest across a county border, where marchers are protesting against a spate of disappearances.
A protagonist wiped clean of memory is something of a challenge for a writer, too. If the almost unbearable tension more than makes up for the odd misstep, you have to accept a certain solemnity as the price of entry.
