One and Half of You is a memoir that begins with the author's growing up biracial on rural Vancouver Island. Not fitting in at school, she turns for comfort to her brother, who is in many ways the opposite of her. Only when she moves from the Island to the mainland does she meet another like her. Through sinuous language, risk, and surprising humour, this hybrid work explores sibling and romantic love, and the complexities of being a biracial person looking for completion in another. Includes links to recordings of three songs.
