Laura is a typical fifteen-year-old growing up in the 1960s, but she carries a secret: her mother suffers from a mental illness, and Laura is terrified that she will face a similar fate. She finds some refuge in art, but when her mother suffers a breakdown after taking painting back up again herself, even art ceases to provide much comfort. Eloquent and compelling, this powerful novel-in-verse will have readers rooting for Laura to find her courage and face her worst fears.
