Harley Columba may still be in high school, but she’s growing up fast. With trouble at home and a stunted social life, she feels more like a survivor than a student. The only thing that keeps her sane is drawing and painting. The man who calls himself her father is a drunken jerk. He and Harley don’t look alike, and her mother refuses to talk about the past. To make sense of her life, Harley decides she must find out the truth about her father: his identity and his connection to her artistic talent. It is a search that will take her from her tiny home town to the streets of New York City. Harley, like a Person is a brutally honest portrait of a troubled teenage girl. As Harley grows more rebellious, her story is not sweetened with artificial hope. Discover more about Harley, like a Person at winslowpress.com.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Cat Bauer perfectly captures the substance and rhythms of teenage emotional life—the heartache of a fight with a friend, the thrill of new love, the frustration with adult interference, and the desperate need for self-knowledge. Good to the last drop.”

    Janet Fitch, author of White Oleander

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathryn | 8/20/2013

    " I like the way the author explores identify issues and the sense of not really being part of your family. It's pretty cool the way Harley uncovers the mystery of her past. It gets a little overwrought with a lot of other drama added to the central issue, but that's teendom for ya. "
