You’ll speed through this intriguing book of short stories. Each young female protagonist must face an event or a task that seems impossible. Each girl, teen or young woman must in author Julie Orringer’s own words:

“. . .re-create themselves as adults and learn to survive in a world that confronts them with difficult decisions or with awful truths about the fallibility of human beings. They must learn to hold onto the familial, romantic, and companionate love in their lives, even when that love involves significant emotional risk.”
