The Astonishing Color of After Hardcover – March 20, 2018 by Emily X.R. Pan. About the book: Leigh Chen Sanders is absolutely certain about one thing: When her mother died by suicide, she turned into a bird. Leigh, who is half Asian and half white, travels to Taiwan to meet her maternal grandparents for the first time. There, she is determined to find her mother, the bird. In her search, she winds up chasing after ghosts, uncovering family secrets, and forging a new relationship with her grandparents. And as she grieves, she must try to reconcile the fact that on the same day she kissed her best friend and longtime secret crush, Axel, her mother was taking her own life. Alternating between reality and magic, past and present, hope and despair, The Astonishing Color of After is a luminous debut novel about finding oneself through family history, art, bravery, and love.

What we're about

This is a group for people who love to discuss literature. We are a reader driven, not an author driven group. Please do not join to promote your own book. Book choices are selected by member nominations and must be available in libraries. We hold lively discussions and learn from each other's viewpoints. If you would like to join a book club that exposes you to books you may never have read otherwise, welcome.
