English term or phrase:At once a fragile girl
In his extraordinary coming-of-age odyssey, Lamb invites us to hitch a wide ride on a journey of love, pain, and renewal with the most heartbreakingly comical heroine to come along in years. At once a fragile girl and a hard-edged cynic, so tough to love yet so inimitably lovable, Dolores is poignantly real as our own imperfections.
Does "At once" here means "once"? or what does it mean?
