Anne Cameron doesn't seem to be able to connect anymore. Her schoolwork is falling off, she's not looking forward to Christmas vacation and she's just about forgotten Brian, who she'd been close to last summer. Is it just that her father has remarried after her mother's death and Dory, his new wife, isn't anything like her mom? "A Formal Feeling" is a poem by Emily Dickinson. It's also the title of the book by Zibby O'Neal which tells of the time Anne has letting go of some very old and haunting memories.
SUBJECTS:     Death -- Fiction.
