From the Publisher
Annotation Complex family relationships and notions of identity are thoughtfully explored in this young adult coming-of-age novel. When her mother, a troubled singer, returns home to Puerto Rico, abandoning 15-year-old Doris to her absentee musician father, the girl turns to roof-top pigeons for solace. The daughter of Puerto Rican parents growing up in New Jersey, Doris isn't sure where she fits in, and struggles at every turn. Neighborhood violence and dropping grades complicate Doris's life and she soon must learn to make a place for herself in a confusing world.
