內容簡介

  2016年紐約時報推薦童書。出走的流浪人生,卻意外碰上未來二十年後的自己……
 

  這是莎拉的故事。
 
  莎拉今年16歲,她對自己無法創造出具有原創性的藝術感到質疑,於是她選擇離開,跟著一個流浪畫家在費城的街道上徘徊。但莎拉想逃離的不但是自己的人生,也試圖逃離她父母那表面和諧、實則接近崩潰的關係。
 
  在徘徊的過程中,十歲的莎拉出現,憶起她那離家出走多年的哥哥,以及許久以前全家的那趟墨西哥之旅。接著二十歲的莎拉也出現,而她也遇到了四十歲但生命中仍在經歷危機的那個自己……。
 
  作者以獨一無二的字符,透過多重視角,深入且富有同情心地探討人性關係。不論你幾歲,讀這本書,都能帶你確切了解你心中那真實的缺憾,發人深省。(文/博客來編譯)
 
  A heartbreaking and mindbending story of a talented teenage artist's awakening to the brokenness of her family from critically acclaimed award-winner A.S. King.
 
  Sixteen-year-old Sarah can't draw. This is a problem, because as long as she can remember, she has "done the art." She thinks she's having an existential crisis. And she might be right; she does keep running into past and future versions of herself as she wanders the urban ruins of Philadelphia. Or maybe she's finally waking up to the tornado that is her family, the tornado that six years ago sent her once-beloved older brother flying across the country for a reason she can't quite recall. After decades of staying together "for the kids" and building a family on a foundation of lies and domestic violence, Sarah's parents have reached the end. Now Sarah must come to grips with years spent sleepwalking in the ruins of their toxic marriage. As Sarah herself often observes, nothing about her pain is remotely original—and yet it still hurts.
 
  Insightful, heartbreaking, and ultimately hopeful, this is a vivid portrait of abuse, survival, resurgence that will linger with readers long after the last page.
