EVOLVED PUBLISHING PRESENTS a coming-of-age novel of literary merit that explores the questions of art, sexuality, religion, and belonging. [DRM-Free]
"This book explores not only the topic of sexuality, but also the intellectual questions that artists and art enthusiasts ask themselves. Art reflects human nature, with all its idiosyncrasies, imperfections and emotional upheavals. This story gives the reader a taste of how art, in its turn, can affect those who are closest to it. The characters from this book will stay with me for quite some time." ~ AlinasVoice
"Cassia is like a painting with many textures." ~ S. Kanton

About the Author
EDITOR: Growing up I was the kid who would get into trouble for reading in class. My family was the one at the restaurant with noses buried in books. It was only natural that I would seek some way to make books a part of my career path. In March of 2014 I graduated from Portland State University with a MS in Technical Writing and Book Publishing. During my program I spent time as Acquisitions Manager and Project Manager with Ooligan Press, a student-run publishing house that is part of the graduate program. Since my graduation, I've started my own small business, taken over ownership of Portland Book Review, and worked as Project Manager at Spectacle Publishing Media Group before arriving here at Evolved Publishing. I read anything except for traditional westerns, and have a soft spot for historical fiction and YA. I tend to gravitate towards genre fiction (particularly science fiction, fantasy, horror, action/adventure and all of the implied subgenres) and am a huge fan of comics and graphic novels. When I'm not reading or writing, I'm probably playing video games with my friends online. While I enjoy writing my own fiction on occasion, my greatest joy is helping fellow writers achieve their dream of publishing their work. I look forward to working with Evolved Publishing and making those dreams into reality. --This text refers to the paperback edition.

We are first introduce to Tanya as the wife and mother she is. Shortly after the start of the novel we get the back story of how she came to be who she is. It is a thrilling and sometimes sad tale of discovering ones true self and finding out that adulthood isn't as easy as it seems.
Tanya and Cassia embark on a journey that at that time period is not one that is easily accepted. Throughout we meet some of the best people that can't seem to catch a break. We meet Nick, Rodney, Bonnie, Daniel and Jenny. This seems to be Tanya's support system and even with the bumps and twists and turns along the way, her life seems to work itself out.
Being an adult does not come from a certain age, or a certain responsibility. Tanya learns that adulthood is reached when you can look at your life and know that something else needs to be done. When you can admit your mistakes and learn from them(at least that's what I think she learns)
The end of this novel is a very real and often overlooked kind of happy. Throughout the years Tanya lost touch with her friends but in the end she knows that they are okay and living life. And really what else can we ask for, for our friends. Happiness and healthiness.
