About the Book
Eisha’s mother is a ceramic artist who teaches Eisha how to make a special shape out of a piece of clay. The shape reminds Eisha of her father, of the ocean, of a lemon. After a day of running errands in their neighborhood, Eisha goes to touch the hardened shape and it shatters. Eisha is left with a sense of loss, but by learning how to make something new from what is left behind, she also learns how to heal.
