Oof, this book packs a mighty punch. Exploring the class divide as it spans in one apartment building in NYC. A young girl grapples with pride in her family, guilt in the opportunities she’s been allotted, and finally the realization that we only rise so far above our own stations.
Okay. Opens with a scene of daughter and father meditating, alluding that things will be creepier. The writing is clean. Here I acknowledge that I'm not the typical reader because I'm tasked with reading hundreds of novels but this opening here was a little too slow to get going.
Enjoyable and a quick read, though the characters are off-putting in their own complicated ways. Good for big city dwellers and people who enjoy unlocking the secrets of apartment life.
