Summary
"As a child in Izmir, Turkey in the 1980's and 90's, Özge Samancı watched as her country struggled between its traditional religious heritage and the new secular westernized world of brand-name products and television stars. In Özge's own family, she struggled to figure out the place where she belonged, too. Her older sister was a perfect student, and her dad hoped Özge would study hard, go to good schools, and become an engineer to find stability in their country's uncertain economic climate. But Özge was a dreamer and wanted adventure. Could she be a scuba diver like Jacques Cousteau? Or should she become a world-famous actress? This touching memoir shows how Özge dared to overcome both her family and her country's expectations to find happiness by being an artist"--
