Speak Of Me As I Am

    By

    Melanie and Damon are both living in the shadow of loss. For Melanie, it's the loss of her larger than life mother, taken by cancer well before her time. For Damon, it is the loss of his best friend, Carlos, who chose to kill himself rather than reveal his secret. Through a staged production of Othello, through the lens of Damon's camera, and through the strokes of Melanie's paintbrush, the two teens find that, rather than moving on from their losses, they can learn to live with their own corners of sadness, especially because they're not doing so alone. And it is only by being honest with themselves that they can begin to find some small bit of peace. This multi -cultural story shows readers that grief comes in all shapes, sizes, and colors - and that love and pain can bind people together even as they threaten to tear us apart.
