Resource Description

Award-winning author Jenny Downham tells the story of Katie, an emotionally-conflicted young girl, who begins to see the world through a different lens since being reconnected with her long-lost grandmother. As she learns the stories and secrets of her aging grandmother’s life and her own mother’s life, she begins to understand these women and see the world through their eyes, learning about herself in the process. “Unbecoming” is suitable for senior secondary students and lends itself well to discussions around identity, mental health, and gender roles and stereotypes.
