By Yevgenia Nayberg

Anya must keep her talent a secret.

Growing up in Russia, left-handed Anya's creativity and artistic spirit is suppressed because right-handedness is the right way - the only way. But Anya can't draw what's in her mind with her right hand. Anya loves to draw, so she uses her left hand in secret. She learns about great artists like Leonardo Da Vinci, Michelangelo, and Rembrandt who were also left-handed, and she imagines them drawing alongside her. When her family moves to America, Anya no longer needs to hide her left-handedness and her secret talent. 

Anya learns to embrace her unique gifts to express herself boldly in this heartwarming story of the artist's spirit in the face of adversity. Lefties will love this celebration of left-handed skills. Bold, expressive illustrations invoke Yevgenia Nayberg's own Ukrainian childhood.
