From Disney to Pluto

From Disney to Pluto

“In the immediate wake of a local school shooting, single mother Elizabeth Miller and her college-age son Bailey struggle to communicate while also contending with aggressive household appliances, the odd new family pet, a forceful crowd threatening to invade their kitchen, and a tree that’s crashed through the ceiling.” Like, an angry fridge? Or a […]
