House of Sticks
by Maia Matsushita
Growing up homeschooled by a single mother in the back roads of New Hampshire, sixteen-year-old Iphis escapes the reality of her home life with the help of a vivid imagination. Then, when a social worker enters the secluded home, Iphis is forced to grapple with the stories she has been told about herself. In this coming of age tale, Iphis must discover who she is if not her mother’s daughter, and fight to become the author of her own story.
