Sintesi dell'editore

Twelve-year-old Rory is an artist like her father. Through a hundred drawing lessons, he has guided her hand, trained her eye, taught her how to mix colors and achieve perspective. Together they plan to paint a beautiful mural for Rory's mother, maybe a sunset, because she always misses the real sunset while she's at her job, supporting the family.

Rory goes to find her father in his studio so she can show him her sketch for the mural. But when she arrives, she finds him kissing his model. Outraged, she tries to hurt him by burning up her sketchbook, and her father leaves. Rory is devastated and stops painting altogether. Finally, she realizes that she has to talk to her father.

"[A] book of surprising beauty and depth....A ray of quiet hopefulness for readers who see themselves redrawing themselves as their families change and grow." (Booklist)
"Teen readers...will appreciate the strengths of this first novel....Mack provides excellent characterizations of both adults and adolescents, a moving and well-paced plot and exquisitely interwoven themes of aesthetics and the multifaceted need for independence that humans of all ages can experience." (School Library Journal)
