About this Item

Great for discussion with a book club - ten copies available. Are people more alike or more different? Are our experiences in growing up so different from one another? Anita Pace takes her feelings, experiences, fears and dreams and they are re-told from you child to womanhood. As she becomes increasingly aware of her sexuality and inequities between the sexes, she must struggle to become who she is, although the striving for confomity has been driven inside her by family and church. Insightful and humorous from the innocence of a child's mind to the conflicts of adolescense, this book is not just about growing up. It's about rising above and beyond where we were told we ever could. It's about how our similarities as people may surpass our differences. And the one very nice touch in this book is that as a child, the type is large like a child's book. As she gradually grows to adulthood the type becomes smaller, eventually becoming the type of an average adult book. Numerous illustrations and photographs, 234 pages. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

About this title


This autobiography begins with large print to indicate the author's age of five, telling her life as in the present. This continues throughout the book with the print getting smaller and the verse more sophisticated as she grows older to age 20. If You Want to Soar is about the struggles and triumphs of the author, Anita Pace, as she deals with a difficult home life and realization of sexuality.
