it was amazing
bookshelves: read-2014, library, teary-eyed, coming-of-age

I needed this book.

A coming-of-age story set in the late 1980s about a girl who has just lost her uncle. It was fantastic. It had all the things I love: a coming-of-age story, art, unlikely friendship, sisters, and a little rebellion.

While reading it I was reminded of how impossibly frustrating the late 80s must have been for those living and dying with AIDS. No one knew anything about the disease and everyone was so unwilling to even talk about it. I highly recommend reading And the Band Played On: Politics, People, and the AIDS Epidemic if you want to know more the crisis.

Anbolyn I'm so glad you found something you loved! Everyone I know who has read this has raved about it. I need to get to it sometime this year.
