Narrator Tara Sands uses just the right sarcastic tone to represent the voice of 16-year-old Lucy Clark. Recently suspended from her boarding school in Texas, Lucy is sent to New York City for some character-building. She is to help care for elderly Edith Fox. Sands's cruel portrait of headmistress Miss Leary makes for a wonderful contrast with the wit of Lucy's voice and the warm welcome of Edith Fox. Tender memories of Lucy's loving grandmother vie with the coldness of her busy parents. Sands differentiates the large cast of characters while ratcheting up the suspense of who is trying to kill Edith. Throughout, she remains focused on Lucy's growing agency with respect to who she is and what she wants in life. S.W.
