Coming of age story

by AnchorageSchools (WorldCat user published 2009-04-27) Good Permalink

Edna is dealing (or not) with her mother's illness, her brother's death and an affair with her art teacher. The author focuses on the facts and lets the reader understand more than the characters. A different look at a student's realtionship with her teacher.
