about

In this modern-day fable about grief, diversity, and family connections, a young girl discovers the joys--and pain--of the creative process.

Eisha lives with her mother, a ceramic artist, who helps her make a special shape out of a piece of clay. The shape reminds Eisha of her father, of the ocean, of a lemon.
