Goldberry M. Long
It’s true—a misguided hippie name can drive you mad. Juniper Tree Burning is the
story of a child named exactly that, Juniper Tree Burning, who hates the name.
She changes her name to Jennie, grows up and does just fine, until the suicide
of her little brother, Sunny Boy Blue, who didn’t think to change his name. Suicide
brings it all home to adult Jennie-Juniper Tree. Powell’s Books on Hawthorne,
3723 SE Hawthorne Blvd, 238-1668, 7:30 pm
