The Likes of Me
by Randall Platt
Cordelia Lu Hankins is half Caucasian, half Chinese - and all albino. Then in the summer of 1918, when she is fourteen, she meets the dashing Squirl and Cordy falls desperately in love with him. But her father forbids her to go near Squirl. Cordy runs away with him and begins an adventure that takes her to the sideshows of Seattle’s Luna Park, where her unusual looks bring her fame.
