Back cover copy

When Asia first sees the Kodak Autographic, she is spellbound. It is such a beautiful camera -- and the pictures she could take with it! She could capture her life here, in Texas, in 1918. Things are changing so quickly. She needs to remember the fire that killed her jackrabbit; the shadowy figure Asia saw slipping away from the fire; Nick Grissom, who's becoming more than just a friend; his puzzling cousin, Boy Blackwell; and Grandmama, who encourages Asia to follow her dreams. And Asia especially needs Grandmama now. Because fifteen-year-old girls just don't become photographers here, in Texas, in 1918....

Review quote

"An innovative novel, in some ways reminiscent of [Newbery Medalist] Patricia MacLachlan....Ingold makes vivid the last days of World War I [and] gives Asia's growing-up a very contemporary texture". -- Kirkus Reviews, pointer review
