Sixteen-year-old Melody's custom-made dress at her coming of age ceremony was measured and sewn for her mother, for a celebration that never took place. This is the story of Melody's parents and grandparents--how they all arrived at this moment. It is about their ambitions and successes as well as the costs, the price they've paid while striving to overcome expectations and escape the pull of history. Red at the Bone looks at the ways young people must make long-lasting decisions about their lives--before they figure out who they are and what they want to be.
