This bubbly collection of short stories and essays is a coming-of-age saga on the one hand and a profoundly nostalgic narrative on the other, depending on the age of the reader. The essays follow a curious little girl through her growing years. Reader gets introduced to her worlds of fantasy, and experiences how they affect her sensibilities, comfort her, and create lasting impressions. The short stories are each an adventure of a kind that every child longs for, or every adult reminisces about. All of them feature girl protagonists, who gently sweep the reader off their feet and take them along in their unexpected journeys. This humorous, insightful, nuanced, inclusive and one-of-a-kind anthology is truly memorable.
