A gorgeous and emotionally resonant debut novel about a half-Japanese teen who grapples with social anxiety and her narcissistic mother in the wake of a crushing rejection from art school. From debut author Akemi Dawn Bowman comes a luminous, heartbreaking story of identity, family, and the beauty that emerges when we embrace our true selves.
This refreshing, deeply affecting debut sparkles with prose as crisp as its Alpine backdrop. Its heroine Cara - grief-stricken after her best friends death and navigating a new life in the Swiss mountains - will win the hearts of YA readers everywhere.
Set in Nashville, Memphis and LA, the second book in the MILA trilogy continues Milas journey, as she navigates romance, friendship and family drama - and finds out what matters most in life and who she truly is.
