The Way the Light Bends

Virtual twins Linc and Holly were once extremely close. But while artistic, creative Linc is her parents' daughter biologically, it's smart, popular Holly, adopted from Ghana as a baby, who exemplifies the family's high-achieving model of academic success.Linc is desperate to pursue photography, to find a place of belonging, and for her family to accept her for who she is, despite her surgeon mother's constant disapproval and her growing distance from Holly. So when she comes up with a plan to use her photography interests and skills to do better in school--via a project based on Seneca Village, a long-gone village in the space that now holds Central Park, where all inhabitants, regardless of race, lived together harmoniously--Linc is excited and determined to prove that her differences are assets, that she has what it takes to make her mother proud. But when a long-buried family secret comes to light, Linc must decide whether her mother's love is worth obtaining....

The Way the Light Bends Reviews

  • Laura Sibson

    In both her debut verse novel, Skyscraping, as well as her latest verse novel, The Way the Light Bends, Jensen evokes New York City with such clarity that I feel as though I am there, walking the city streets with her characters. In this latest book, Linc spends time in Central Park researching Seneca Village, the community of people who lived there before they were pushed out to create the park. Jensen uses the history of Seneca Village and Linc's passion for photography to convey the powerful ...more

  • Leah G.

    Linc shows the character strength 'appreciation of beauty,' because she notices and photographs the little things, and gives meaning to them. For instance, she sees grass growing out of a small crack in the sidewalk, and calls it a "rebellion."

  • Sarah

    A novel-in-verse about a young photographer and her personal growth.

    Poetry with stunning imagery and concrete metaphors.

    Family relationships which demonstrate how parents and siblings all influence each other.

    A coming-of-age as a young artist works to convince her family her photos are worthwhile.

    A beautiful story, made all the better for its structure and the poetry.

    THE WAY THE LIGHT BENDS is a wonderfully written free-verse novel. It’s beautiful and genuine, and it’s now one of my favorite books. I look forward to what Jensen has to offer in the future.

    This novel focuses on Linc’s struggle through high school and her relationship with her adopted sister Holly. Linc is incredibly artistically talented but doesn’t do well in school, while Holly does, making Linc feel like her biological parents prefer Holly

    Sisters Linc and Holly could not be more different, which used to bring them closer together. These days, though, their differences are only highlighting the fact that had Linc not been born around the same time that their parents adopted Holly, they'd never even know each other, much less be friends. Told in free verse from Linc's perspective, this is a story of fitting in while accepting what makes you unique, and playing to your personal strengths instead of focusing on your weaknesses. The p ...more

    What a beautiful book! A great and quick read for any teen who struggles to be who they are while conforming to who they think they’re supposed to be. Also loved learning about the history of Central Park and viewing Linc’s world through her mind-camera and real camera. I highly recommend this book to teens and their parents (as well as writers). This book even makes me want to try my hand at verse.
