Nico Caven has never really gotten over the disappearance of her mother when Nico was four. A police investigation turned up nothing, and despite all the mandatory counselling sessions, Nico still longs for resolution and to know more about who her mother was, and why she might have left.
One day Nico discovers a box of her mother’s CDs and inside the cover of a Nirvana album is a polaroid of her mother and Kurt Cobain at a Nirvana convert before they got super famous. It sparks something in Nico and she starts to believe that Kurt Cobain is still alive and her real father. When she sees a man she believes to be Kurt in disguise, Nico crashes into action and recklessly endangers herself, and her heart.
Nico is an off-beat character and her pain manifests in a truly quirky and obsessive way which still feels believable. There are a lot of Nirvana facts which were a little distracting, but also interesting and made me listen to their music again!
