Alma Presses Play

by Tina Cane
Fiction, Growing Up | Audio

“Alma’s life is a constant of halfways: She’s half-Chinese, half-Jewish; her parents spend half the time fighting, and the other half silent; and, at thirteen, she’s halfway through becoming a woman. Then comes the year when everything changes, and her life is overtaken by constant endings: friends move away, romances bloom and wither, her parents file for divorce, and just like that her childhood seems to be over. Among this world of confusing beginnings, middles, and endings, could there be a roadmap for Alma to truly find herself?” — Provided by publisher. Unrated. Commercial audiobook. For senior high and older readers.
