IBNA- The debut novel of American author Lynne Rae Perkins, 'All Alone in the ‎Universe' (1999) has been published in Persian and is available in Iranian bookstores. ‎
Centered on a 13-year-old girl's feelings of abandonment when her best friend finds a new buddy, the Children's novel has been translated into Persian by Tina Qorab. Paidayesh Publishing has released 'All Alone in the Universe' in 132 pages.
“Before last summer Maureen and I were best friends.... At least I think we were. I don't know what happened exactly. As some people who get hit by trucks sometimes say,'I didn't see anything coming.”
When her best friend since the third grade starts acting as though Debbie doesn't exist, Debbie finds out the hard way that life can be a lonesome place.
But in the end the heroine of this wryly funny coming-of-age story- a girl who lives in a house covered with stuff that is supposed to look like bricks but is just a fake brick pattern- discovers that even the hourly tragedies of junior high school can have silver linings, just as a house covered with Insul-Brick can protect a real home. This first novel shines- fun, engrossing, bittersweet, and wonderfully unpredictable.
Lynne Rae Perkins was awarded the Newbery Medal for Criss Cross. She is the author of four other novels—‘All Alone in the Universe’, ‘As Easy as Falling Off the Face of the Earth’, ‘Nuts to You’, and ‘Secret Sisters of the Salty Sea’.
She has also written and illustrated several acclaimed picture books, including ‘Frank and Lucky Get Schooled’; ‘The Broken Cat’; ‘Snow Music: Pictures from Our Vacation’; and ‘The Cardboard Piano. The author lives with her family in northern Michigan.
