A title that would confuse most is what labels a book covers the identity crisis of many and highlights the cultural struggles that are far from uncommon. On top of being her senior year, Kayyam Maquet also finds it difficult to fathom her loss in the essay contest that would get her into her dream school. Kayyam has to discover herself in order to progress, and in doing so meets Alexandre. Art comes to life, creating bonds and helping others find their true self. This book alternates perspectives and really narrates a masterful journey of a teenage girl.
