內容簡介 舞蹈為她點燃漫長黑暗盡頭的光亮。從Ada 高中畢業離家上大學說起,交錯從小學一年級到七年級的回憶。從小父母離異,父親是移民和虔誠教徒,教育她的方式令她困惑,而母親身陷酒癮,無法給予愛。小時候Ada的頭髮和身材都被同學訕笑,然而她內心渴望被喜歡,渴望友誼。直到朋友引領她進入舞蹈的世界,掙脫別人為她做好的選擇,找到自己站起來的力量。A Finalist for the National Book Award When Ada leaves home for her freshman year at a Historically Black College, it’s the first time she’s ever been so far from her family—and the first time that she’s been able to make her own choices and to seek her place in this new world. As she stumbles deeper into the world of dance and explores her sexuality, she also begins to wrestle with her past—her mother’s struggle with addiction, her Nigerian father’s attempts to make a home for her. Ultimately, Ada discovers she needs to brush off the destiny others have chosen for her and claim full ownership of her body and her future. “Candice Iloh’s beautifully crafted narrative about family, belonging, sexuality, and telling our deepest truths in order to be whole is at once immensely readable and ultimately healing.”—Jacqueline Woodson, New York Times Bestselling Author of Brown Girl Dreaming “An essential—and emotionally gripping and masterfully written and compulsively readable—addition to the coming-of-age canon.”—Nic Stone, New York Times Bestselling Author of Dear Martin “This is a story about the sometimes toxic and heavy expectations set onthe backs of first-generation children, the pressures woven into the familydynamic, culturally and socially. About childhood secrets with sharp teeth. And ultimately, about a liberation that taunts every young person.” —Jason Reynolds, New York Times Bestselling Author of Long Way Down
