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.
