A good summer read. This story of a Brooklyn girl who, against gigantic odds, tries to make it in New York strays from the formulaic. The character of Claudia is streetwise and naive, trying to be adult but behaving more like a surly teen. Her younger sister Phoebe, beautiful and unaffected, struggles with abuse and sell-determination. Despite untraditional mishaps and errors of judgment, both come to terms with their foibles and reconcile with their pasts. An untraditional coming of age story.
