PositiveBooklist\"Rather than offering explanations, these stories thrive on closely observed details and moments told with both pathos and humor as characters confront the surprising twists and turns of love, sexual awakening, marriage, parenting, and decisions of life or death ... Power asks us to consider and appreciate the very human and humanizing experience of striving for something just out of reach, or for opportunities just passed by.\
