Baker & Taylor
Abandoned by her father and struggling through adolescence under the shadow of her overbearing mother, Jewish-Siberian teen Sasha has a baby with a nihilistic homeless alcoholic and becomes a mail-order bride as part of her quest to find her father in America. A first novel.

Blackwell North Amer
Sasha Goldberg is the ultimate outsider: she's a chubby, biracial Jewish girl from the Siberian town of Asbestos 2. Her father takes off for the United States, and leaves Sasha to navigate adolescence in a bleak apartment block with her overbearing mother. At fourteen Sasha falls in love with an art school dropout who lives inside a concrete pipe in the town dump. Following her heart gets her into trouble at home, so she flees Russia as a mail-order and lands in suburban Arizona. There, Sasha abandons her Red Lobster-loving fiance and embarks on a misadventure-filled journey across America in search of her father.
