Tab (tabbrown) | 5014 comments Maybe Behind the Mountains Behind the Mountains (First Person Fiction) by Edwidge Danticat ?

How many years ago did you read this?
Anything about the cover?
Part of a series?
Genre: historical fiction, fantasy, coming-of-age, etc?

Still looking, but everyone kept asking weird questions that if I knew the answer to, would mean I could find the book myself...

How many years ago the book was read (or some approximation), cover, part of a series, genre are not weird questions in this group. Some people even add that without being asked.

Ayshe | 4230 comments Nor is the suggestion to check a list weird.

Abebooks' BookSleuth forum has This is a collaborative effort. Nobody here is being paid to find books for others, so we would appreciate if you would stick around and try your hand at solving some of them. Maybe we need something similar on the front page with emphasis on the first part :)
