From a National Book Award winner ("What I Saw and How I Lied") comes the tale of a 16-year-old girl caught in a mix of love, mystery, Broadway glamour, and Mob retribution in 1950 New York.
Annotation:
Set in 1950s New York City, 17-year-old Kit Corrigan has left behind her family and dreary life in Rhode Island for the lights of Broadway. But getting by is harder than she thought, and when her ex-boyfriend's father offers her an apartment and a plumb dancing job, Kit doesn't hesitate. All she has to do in return is keep tabs on the mafiosos he works for as a lawyer. All too soon, Kit finds herself in too deep with no way out, and no hope. At the same time, Kit's family history and secrets are mixed into the narrative. Judy Blundell is also the author of the National Book Award-winner WHAT I SAW AND HOW I LIED.

Praise

"[A] brilliantly conceived novel set against the backdrop of the 1950 Kefauver mob hearings and the Red Scare with a story of redemption and truth at its core." 02/01/2011

"Blundell writes convincingly about New York City, and Kit's longing to indulge in city life is well developed and palpable....Blundell smartly explicates the dark side of male-female relationships." - Darcy Steinke 03/13/2011

"Readers will love Kit as she navigates New York City, incipient adulthood and her feelings for a volatile but achingly handsome boyfriend. And the story's climax will blow your mind." (starred review) - Liz French 03/01/2011
