- Finalist, Multicultural (Adult Fiction)
Hawaiian-born Letitia Moffitt, who studied writing under Maxine Hong Kingston, channels her mentor’s humor and compassion with linked stories of strained family relations. Miranda McGee, the daughter of shy, pragmatic Grace Chao and globetrotting dreamer George McGee, feels like a social pariah. She says she is the first in the line, a factory original, not bound to one land, nor one people. When she’s home, she’s never entirely at home and when she’s away, she never is quite away.
