故事简介

“人有十根手指,左手五指可作钢琴伴奏,右手的则负责带出生命的主旋律。无指的人,是否无法弹奏完整的曲子之余,更无指望得到幸福?”

故事主角海碧·威廉斯(Higby Williams)是一个天生左手没有手指的女生。讽刺的是,她的母亲吉赛儿却依据爵士钢琴家芭芭拉·喜克碧(Barbara Higbie)的名字为海碧取名。吉赛儿寄望海碧长大后,能成为一位优秀的钢琴家,岂知,她美好的想象在海碧出生的那一刻,完全破碎了。

海碧在整个童年时期被母亲嫌弃,还好有父亲马丁的疼爱。她从小乖巧懂事,希望做母亲眼中的好孩子,无奈母亲却因为过度忧郁,选择在她12岁时了结生命。丧母之痛加上叛逆期使然,海碧在学校频频闯祸,直到她遇上了英格丽老师和几个好友知己……

虽然海碧左手残缺,但她却力求在困境中渡过和其他人一样的青春期。她追求的不是怜悯或钦佩,而是认同与尊重;她渴求的不是礼让与宽容,而是相等体验幸福的机会。她为自己取的中文名字——海碧,即象征着“碧海蓝天”,象征她自由不受别人左右的心。

 

People have ten fingers with the left to play piano accompaniment and the right to control one’s theme of life. A fingerless person would not be able to play the song completely, and do you think he would be blissful?

Higby Williams was a girl who had no fingers on her left hand since she was born. Ironically, her mother, Gisele named her daughter after the renowned jazz pianist, Barbara Higbie. Gisele hoped that Higby would become a wonderful pianist one day. Unfortunately, Gisele’s magnificent dream was totally crushed when Higby was born.

Higby was abandoned by her mother throughout her childhood. Fortunately, she was still loved by her father, Martin. Higby was cute and obedient, hoping tomorrow is another day to become the apple of her mother’s eyes. Hopelessly, Higby failed to do so because Gisele chose to end her life due to depression when Higby was 12.

As a result of grievous loss of her mother in addition to rebellious behaviors governing her adolescence, Higby frequently got into trouble in school until she met her teacher, Ingrid and a couple of friends.

Although Higby was crippled, she struggled to live her teenage years like others. What she desired was not pity or admiration, but recognition and respect; what she pursued was not leniency or tolerance, but equal opportunity to experience happiness. She gave herself a Chinese name—Hai Bi which symbolized blue sea with no boundaries to freedom.
