What are Rakuten Super Points™?
|Born in the eighth year of Enclosure, ten-year-old Honor lives in a highly regulated colony with her defiant parents, but when they have an illegal second child and are taken away, it is up to Honor and her friend Helix, another "Unpredictable," to uncover a terrible secret about their Island and the Corporation that runs everything.|
Goodman achieved success remarkably early in her life. Her first story was published in Commentary when she was a freshman at Harvard, and the year she graduated her first story collection came out, after which her books began to appear in regular succession; and KATERSKILL FALLS became a best-seller in 1998, when Goodman was barely 30. Goodman was raised in Hawaii in a small and conservative Jewish community; her mother, a geneticist, taught at the University of Hawaii where Goodman's father was a philosophy professor. She has a Ph.D. from Stanford and is also the mother of two sons. In 1999, she was granted a $30,000 Whiting Foundation Writer's Award.
