by Cathleen Schine - Fiction, Historical Fiction

It’s 1964. Eleven-year-old Fin and his glamorous, worldly, older half sister, Lady, have just been orphaned, and Lady, whom Fin hasn’t seen in six years, is now his legal guardian and his only hope. That means Fin is uprooted from a small dairy farm in rural Connecticut, landing in Greenwich Village in the middle of the Swinging Sixties. He soon learns that Lady --- giddy, impulsive, and pursued by an ardent and dogged set of suitors --- is as much his responsibility as he is hers.
