ABOUT THIS BOOK

At 16, Ginny finds that her love of painting connects her to the artistic Haitian mother she never knew and eases the isolation she feels as the only mixed-race teen in her Welsh village. When she learns she has a half-brother by her father's first marriage, her world is shattered. Ginny embarks on a quest for the truth that will allow her to claim her artistic heritage--and face her father.

QUOTES

"The emotional truths that Pullman reveals are so heartfelt and raw that they hardly read like fiction."--(starred) Publishers Weekly.

"An intriguing mystery that keeps the reader guessing and turning the pages until the very end."--Horn Book.  

AWARDS

WINNER 1992 - ALA Best Books for Young Adults
