A family saga and a poetic tale about a young, queer girl coming to terms with her inner and outer identities. Elspeth/Betty is born in a Portland hospital with cobalt blue skin. From her 0-10 year-old perspective, she watches her thrown-together parents become parents, unravels the folklore of her Palestinian ancestors, and discovers her great aunt has more in common with her than she thought. With language so rich you'll want to savor it with a spoon!
