Now in paperback, the acclaimed first novel that movingly charts the intersection of two lives, two worlds -- the story of a fierce and untameable young girl, growing up "privileged" in a New England household darkened by her parents' epically unhappy marriage, and the Caribbean nanny who has left her own family a thousand miles behind to live among strangers. At the heart of this vibrant and emotionally searing novel is a tale of finding a sense of belonging in an unexpected place.
-- Ideal for reading groups -- with a bound-in reading group guide. A novel sure to spark discussion about parent/child relationships.
