White Bird in a Blizzard is about what it's like to be a teenager and to have your Mom disappear out of the blue one day. Left with your simple-minded father, you put a callous over your heart so as not to deal in reality. Kat is clearly in denial about what she suspects happened to her mother.

Kat Connors is 17 years old when her seemingly perfect homemaker mother, Eve, disappears in 1988. Having lived for so long in an emotionally repressed household, she barely registers her mother's absence and certainly doesn't blame her doormat of a father, Brock, for the loss. But as time passes, Kat begins to come to grips with how deeply Eve's disappearance has affected her.
