Seventeen-year-old Jane’s a very brave boy. And a very difficult girl. She’ll become a remarkable woman, an icon of her century, but that’s a long way off. A tomato-picking, dust bowl immigrant from Texas to California, Jane is manipulated into a terrible fight with her parents, leading her to leave her father for dead in an irrigation ditch.

And a very difficult girl. She’ll become a remarkable woman, an icon of her century, but that’s a long way off. A tomato-picking, dust bowl immigrant from Texas to California, Jane is manipulated into a terrible fight with her parents, leading her to leave her father for dead in an irrigation ditch. She steals her mother's Ford and escapes to Depression-era San Francisco, where she fakes her way into work as a newspaper copy boy. Everything’s looking up. Freed by her false male identity, she’s climbing the ladder at the paper, winning validation, skill, and connections with the artists and thinkers of her day. But then her father reappears on the paper’s front page, his arm around a girl who’s just been beaten into a coma. Jane’s got to find her father before he finds her, and before everyone else finds her out. Copy Boy explores the lengths we’ll go to secure our own spirations, and the ties that bind us to family, no matter what. Otherness.
