WHO IS MY FATHER? Fourteen-year-old Harley Columba is convinced she's adopted. She is the only blue-eyed alien in a family of brown-eyed earthlings. She is a painter, musician and poet. Her parents drink, fight and watch TV. Harley lives in the suburbs "only forty-five minutes outside of New York City if there's no traffic," but "four zillion light years away." She decides to search for her real parents, and in her quest finds herself.
Smart, funny and refreshingly honest, Harley, Like a Person is a compelling novel of family, creativity and the enduring strength of self.
