    PDF (Putting Makeup on Dead People) The smooth glossy prose makes this book go down easily but I am not so sure that is a good thing There are four main strands to this story Donna's pursuit of becoming a mortician her strained relationship with her mother her love life and her spirituality The first strand and the only one that is prominently featured on the back blurb and summary is far and away the most interesting Donna's interest in mortuary science

The synopsis that I had read for this title make it seem as though this tale is about Donna s coming of age But really this book encompasses an entire family s rebirth The Parisis lost their father to cancer a few years before the beginning of this novel and the plot opens while the family is still in some sort of stasis The mother remains loyal to her husband not dating not socializing The younger sister Linnie is rebellious in the form of wild hair color choices and Donna herself is slightly withdrawn and maybe a little morose Only the eldest brother seems to have cleanly moved on succeeding at college and a healthy relationshipIt was a uiet novel What starts as Donna being portrayed as a uiet girl is slowly revealed to be a girl changed by her father s early death She s very much in her own head throughout the book I think that s why you don t notice how little interaction with others Donna really has I felt like at first she could just be super uiet Her reactions to things are uirky and unexpected When her new BF Liz is called a spitfire Donna asks if this means Liz is like a dragon Perceptive yesnormal response no Donna s mother would like nothing than to see her daughter at the local University of Dayton working towards a degree in communications Apparently under the misunderstanding that a communications degree will help Donna learn to interact with people better lol But it s this unusual view the inability to present to the world what they want to hear that allows her to become such a sympathetic morticianYep Donna s great goal in life is to become a mortician Lets just say that a girl withdrawn after her father s death becoming obsessed with a career in funerals freaks everyone out Freaks But seeing how well Donna takes to the job s unusual skill set how happy the job makes her clears away any stray thoughts of the depressing It also helps that the brothers running the local funeral home are happy normal and super supportive It was cool to see the insight into this career the book gave It really seems like it could be super rewardingThat is if you can get over putting the makeup on dead peopleAlso the afore mentioned best friend Liz really jump starts Donna s transformation Liz helps bring Donna back into a relationship with her Aunt Selena who is a witch Another sub theme of this book is a discussion of religion Donna s family are devout Catholic Thus Aunt Selena has been banned from the family because of her Wiccan religion While Aunt Selena s views on life may not be Donna s a big part of Donna s coming of age is understanding her own religious viewpoint and how it may differ in some ways from her traditional upbringingLike I said this was a uiet read I think it remained realistic and could have a great impact on someone if read at the right time in their life Someone on the brink of change heading off to college or dealing with the death of a loved one For myself while I understood the text and felt for the charactersit didn t pack as big of a punch Though I ll chalk it up to reading it at the wrong time Put this one in your back pocket for a rainy afternoon or a suggestion for a teen dealing with a lot of change in their lifehttpthelibrarianreadswordpresscom

I m probably the only person that cried over this funny compassionate book about growing up discovering yourself and coping with life after the death of a loved one but we all know that I am a huge weepy sap anyway I love character driven stories and while this one doesn t exactly go where I expected because it is also largely plotless with a lot of interesting avenues mortuary school classes for example left unexplored it also gave me a satisfying meaningful experience I connected with Donna s slightly off sense of humor her observations of the people around her and her freuent insights into her own life that still don t result in immediate changes in her thinking or behavior Donna is confused and sad and hilarious and very real Violi s writing is expressive and uniue and she does a great job conveying complicated emotional stuff in small simple ways There s some really great stuff in here and I can t wait to see what Violi does next

I must admit I wanted to read this novel for the mortician aspect I ve always wanted to be a mortician I know it s morbid but I ve always had a weird fascination with death so I was easily able to connect with Donna on this level I had hoped for of the story to center around the funeral home and actually putting makeup on dead people but the focus of the book isn t really about that at all or even the job of a mortician Instead this novel focuses on Donna Parisi s coming of age Lost and forlorn Donna still struggles with the death of her father and she must battle her metaphorical ghosts and learn to move on While I enjoyed this portion of the story I did find the narrative to be a bit too slow for my taste As Donna deals with different aspects of her life such as her mother love interests finding a job and deciding on a school for college she seems to just glide along I m of an action lover and this novel doesn t really deal with that aspect much though its real life parallels were interesting in their own right To read my full review
