Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 6-12 It's hard to say which is more impressive in this literate, complex storyOneal's use of language, imagery and color or the development of her finely drawn characters. Kate, the daughter of a world-famous artist, feels only bitterness toward her egotistical father, whose approval she so desperately wants. While at home recuperating from mononucleosis, she falls in love with a graduate student assisting her father. Through Ian's understanding and support, she is able to stem some of the anger she harbors toward her father. The story unfolds slowly, as Oneal exposes Kate's talent as an artist, her refusal to paint and her gradual return to it. The change in Kate's attitude toward her father is paralleled by her ability to complete, finally, an English paper on The Tempest , a paper that she can finish only after she can deal with her dislike of Prospero and his similarity to her father. All is not resolved in the end, but Kate does come to understand herself and is on the way toward a better relationship with her frustrated, aging father. Artist that she is, Kate sees the world in colors; Oneal shows her audience Kate's world through her own use of color. A coming-of-age novel that is light-years above most others.

    *Read this book, and you will understand! A Coming of Age Story that Can Be Related to by All

    *Read this book, and you will understand!* A Coming of Age Story that Can Be Related to by All In this story, Ms. O'Neal gives the reader a unique view of living with a man whom many would call a painting genius. Even so, all that seventeen year old Kate wants is to call him dad. Kate is unsure of where she stands in life, and has given up her personal love of painting to 'plow her own field'. Through the course of the easily read, and very inspiring book, Ms. O'Neal displays competently the trials and tribulations that Kate goes through in trying to discover herself. In the end, Kate has made many important realizations about life, and come to view her relationship with her father in an entirely diffenent perspective. Through Kate's difficulties, one comes to view all things in another light. Indeed, this is one of the few books I have ever read that I continue to read several times every year, for the past five or more years, and every time, I find myself enjoying it more.
