Yellow MiniAuthor Lori Weber ISBN 9781554551996 Binding Trade Paper Publisher Fitzhenry & Whiteside Publication Date September 07, 2011 Size 140 x 191 mm
A powerful free-verse novel that intertwines the coming-of-age stories of five teens and their relationships with each other, their parents, and themselves.
Mark, Mr. Popularity, tools around town in the yellow mini left to him by his recently deceased father; his new girlfriend Stacey can't believe her luck, but doesn't understand Mark's odd need to disappear into the woods from time to time; her former friends Mary and Annabelle try to find their place in the world - shy Mary transforms into a concert pianist and Annabelle into an world-changing activist with the idealistic and adoring Christopher by her side. In the background, the teens' parents struggle with their desire to protect their children, yet give them room to grow into the adults they must become. Each voice tells his or her story in powerful free verse.
"Told in several first person perspectives, this free-verse tale is full of high-school drama and is perfect for lit-loving teens."
