Dear Fang, With Love - Rufi Thorpe

Staff Pick
In Thorpe’s well-paced and enjoyable novel, Lucas and his 17-year old daughter Vera take a trip to Vilnius, Lithuania in the summer before her senior year of high school. Vera was diagnosed with bipolar illness the previous year and is floundering due to the side effects of her medications. On the trip Lucas hopes to learn more about his grandmother’s past—she fought with the partisans against the Nazis before later emigrating to the U.S.—while lifting his daughter’s spirits. The historically contested ground of Vilnius provides a unique backdrop for this tale of the complicated ties that bind us to our families, and the difficulties faced by teenagers suffering from mental illness.
