What happens to a girl’s sense of joy and belonging - to her belief in herself - as she becomes a woman? This unforgettable portrait of coming-of-age offers subtle yet powerful reflections on class, parenthood, addiction, lust, and the irrepressible power of dreams. 

“I’ve been an Allegra Goodman fan for years, but Sam is hands down my new favourite. I loved this powerful and endearing portrait of a girl who must summon deep within herself the grit and wisdom to grow up.”  -  Lily King, author of Writers & Lovers 

Sam is seven years old and living in Beverly, Massachusetts. She adores her father, though he isn't around much. Her mother struggles to make ends meet, and never fails to remind Sam that if she studies hard and acts responsibly, adulthood will be easier-more secure and comfortable. But comfort and security are of little interest to Sam. As a teenager, Sam begins to doubt herself. She yearns to be noticed, even as she wants to disappear. When her climbing coach takes an interest in her, his attention is more complicated than she anticipated.

"In Sam Ms. Goodman has turned simplicity itself into a powerful tool for evoking how it feels to be young ... She is particularly good at revealing how adult speech shapes the way young people think about themselves and imagine the contours of their world ... In Sam, the heights our heroine reaches are not so dizzying, but that she ascends at all is a reason to cheer."  -  Meghan Cox Gurdon, The Wall Street Journal

Allegra Goodman’s beautiful and wise novel Sam is deceptively simple: it is about a girl who becomes a woman. But underneath its straightforward chronology and spare sentences lie layers of extraordinary depth, sensitivity, and tenderness. The simplicity of this tender, emotionally honest novel is what makes it so powerful.
