In the 1950’s in the French Quarter in New Orleans, 17-year-old Josie’s prostitute mother ensnares Josie who is desperate for a college education and a life outside the Quarter (14-17).

Our young reviewer says:

This book shows an interesting concept of family- it’s not blood only. It’s who raised you, raised you most. The character may not notice she is changed but we notice she’s more self-aware – ready for the world outside of New Orleans.
– Olivia, Age 14 (Bronx, New York)
