9780399167713: Skyscraping

A heartrending, bold novel in verse about family, identity, and forgiveness

Mira is just beginning her senior year of high school when she discovers her father with his male lover. Her world–and everything she thought she knew about her family–is shattered instantly. Unable to comprehend the lies, betrayal, and secrets that–unbeknownst to Mira–have come to define and keep intact her family’s existence, Mira distances herself from her sister and closest friends as a means of coping. But her father’s sexual orientation isn’t all he's kept hidden. A shocking health scare brings to light his battle with HIV. As Mira struggles to make sense of the many fractures in her family's fabric and redefine her wavering sense of self, she must find a way to reconnect with her dad–while there is still time.

Told in raw, exposed free verse, Skyscraping reminds us that there is no one way to be a family.

A UNIVERSE AWAY
 
I drop my backpack. Run.
Don’t wait for the elevator.
Chase the stairs down, like a slide.
Run past Jimmy, out onto Riverside.
I make it to the water.
Yell at a boat on the Hudson,
beg it to take me away, under a bridge,
out to the ocean, vast and wide,
beg someone to make me blind,
take me out of this shady city,
to a country, a continent,
 
a universe away
from here.

 
BLURRED
 
My eyes blur,
I don’t know what I’ve just seen.
 
My legs shake,
the earth has shifted.
