Additional Info

Seabird is in a Happy Place is the fast-paced, energetic testimony of Seabird, a young woman who purports to have died and come back to life under the condition that she die once again as soon as the rain stops. Seabird explains how her resurrection coincided with an accidental encounter - a sudden romance that complicated her inevitable return to the state of being dead - and how, as the rain continued, she found herself with more to lose than she would have thought possible.
