Set in the 1960s, Barbara Bottner's I Am Here Now is a beautiful novel in verse about one artist's coming of age.

It's a heartbreaking, powerful and inspiring depiction of what it's like to shatter your life--and piece it all back together. You can't trust Life to give you decent parents, or beautiful eyes, a fine French accent or an outstanding flair for fashion.

No, Life does what it wants. It's sneaky as a thief. Maisie's first day of High school should be exciting, but all she wants is to escape. Her world is lonely and chaotic, with an abusive mother and a father who's rarely there to help. So when Maisie, who finds refuge in her art, meets the spirited Rachel and her mother, a painter, she catches a glimpse of a very different world--one full of life, creativity, and love--and latches on. But as she discovers her strengths through Rachel's family, Maisie, increasingly desperate, finds herself risking new friendships, and the very future she's searching for.
