Tiny follows its three main characters as they circumnavigate the world of grief. Nate and Annie are lost parents to a three-year old taken tragically too soon and Josh is the perpetrator of this tragedy and is struggling under the guilt and grief he believes he does not deserve. Though Josh is innocent and knows the accident was a fluke, he feels responsible for little Penelope’s death and cannot stop his growing obsession with Annie, procured from her public Facebook page. Nate and Annie share a singular love for their daughter but their compatible differences before Penelope’s death become expansive chasms of differing grief patterns that cannot be overcome. Tiny traces the trio as their life paths become more convoluted and unpredictable; divisions arise where they shouldn’t and moves are made without consideration. Kim Hooper writes her characters with tender reality and even though the path is dark, lights of humor and wit are dotted throughout. Tiny is a thoroughly engrossing story of loss, both of loved ones and of control.
