Summary "This novel in verse captures one young woman's struggle for independence, equality, and identity as the daughter of Greek and French immigrants in tumultuous 1930s Detroit"--Back cover.
Audience Grades 7-9.
Summary Detroit, 1930s. Mary, the American-born daughter of Greek and French immigrants, lives in a tiny apartment with her parents, her brothers, and her twin sister. She questions why her parents ever came to America, while yearning for true love, to own her own business, and to be an independent, modern American woman. Flashbacks to her parents' childhoods connect their stories with Mary's: issues of arranged marriage, learning about independence, and yearning to grow beyond one's own culture. -- adapted from back cover
