An iBooks Book of the Year 2019 ‘Our favourite debut … a glorious empowering coming of age NY story.’ ‘An electric debut’ New York Times ‘Exhilarating’ Claire Messud ‘Deeply affecting’ Salman Rushdie Seventeen-year-old Lucy Adler a street-smart trash-talking baller is often the only girl on the public courts. Lucy’s inner life is a contradiction. She’s by turns quixotic and cynical insecure and self-possessed and despite herself is in unrequited love with her best friend and pick-up teammate Percy son of a prominent New York family who is trying to resist his upper crust fate. As Lucy questions accepted notions of success bristling against her own hunger for male approval she is drawn into the world of a pair of provocative female artists living in what remains of New York’s bohemia. In her hit US debut Dana Czapnik memorably captures the voice of a young woman in the first flush of freedom searching for an authentic way to live and love.
