The Astonishing Color of After
Emily X. R. Pan
This poignant novel follows Leigh Chen Sanders, who is half Asian and half white, on her journey to Taiwan to meet her maternal grandparents for the first time in search of her mother, who she is certain turned into a bird after her suicide. As she uncovers family secrets and tries to reconcile her grief, Leigh must navigate both real and magical elements, and the complexities of friendship and romance. The Astonishing Color of After is a powerful story about finding oneself through love, grief, art, and family history.
