Synopsis

An iBooks Book of the Year 2019, 'Our favourite debut ... a glorious, empowering, coming of age NY story.'



'An electric debut' New York Times

'Exhilarating' Claire Messud

'Deeply affecting' Salman Rushdie



Seventeen-year-old Lucy Adler, a street-smart, trash-talking baller, is often the only girl on the public courts. Lucy's inner life is a contradiction. She's by turns quixotic and cynical, insecure and self-possessed and, despite herself, is in unrequited love with her best friend and pick-up teammate Percy, son of a prominent New York family who is trying to resist his upper crust fate.



As Lucy questions accepted notions of success, bristling against her own hunger for male approval, she is drawn into the world of a pair of provocative female artists living in what remains of New York's bohemia.



In her hit US debut, Dana Czapnik memorably captures the voice of a young woman in the first flush of freedom searching for an authentic way to live and love.

A novel I enjoyed so much that it's hard not to fill this review with clichés. Lucy Adler is the 1990s Holden Caulfield—only she is cleverer, braver, more curious, and way more fun to hang out with. A coming of age story that really captures you with its philosophical musings on love, art, friendship and 90s music; the first book in a long time that I couldn't wait to pick back up, and I sorely miss the characters even now.
