9780930773830: Anna Begins

Anna Begins is a pair of Young Adult novellas, each about a girl and a boy around seventeen years old. In the title story, Melissa has an eating disorder, an absent best friend, a disconnected mother, her first sexual experience, and a story to write about all of it. Finding peer support in telling her own story, she decides to try to live the plot she is trying to write. A Million Miles Up, the second story, is an upside-down tale of teenage love. Scott and Elly try to navigate their junior year in high school. Scott wants to be famous and takes up celebrity-scale drinking. Elly just wants to be happy, but must deal with an abusive father. As both of them fall through the cracks at their school, they approach an ending neither of them can return from: Elly decides to kill her father. The two stories in Anna Begins explore the humor, frustration and depth of pain the come with the most awkward years of life: the teens.

Book Description Black Heron Press. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Paperback. 149 pages. Anna Begins is a pair of novellas, each about a girl and a boy, both seventeen years old. In the title story, Melissa has an eating disorder, an absent best friend, a disconnected mother, her first kiss, and is writing a story about all of it. The second story, A Million Miles Up, is an upside-down accounting of teenage love. Scott and Elly try to navigate their junior year in high school. Scott wants to be famous and takes up celebrity-scale drinking. Elly just wants to be happy, but must deal with a family secret. As both of them fall through the cracks at their school, they approach an ending neither of them can return from. The two stories in this book explore the humor, frustration, and depth of pain that come with the most awkward years of life: the teens. Anna Begins won the 2008 Black Heron Press Award for Social Fiction. From the announcement of that award: The stories in this fine book are concerned, in part, with the affects of a neglectful or abusive parent on her or his child. The teenagers respond in different ways. One assaults her own body; another her father. Yet, despite the self-loathing and rage, they search for the answers to lifes questions in song lyrics, they test the limits of friendship, they are funny and sarcastic, they make each other laugh, and they open a window to the readers past, if he is already an adult, or to insight into her own life, if she is still being tossed about by the storms of adolescence. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Paperback. Bookseller Inventory # 9780930773830
