General Note:
"Read with Jenna" -- Dust jacket.
Summary, etc.:
"A captivating debut novel about the tangled fates of two best friends and daughters of the Italian mafia, and a coming-of-age story of twentieth-century Brooklyn itself" -- Provided by publisher.
Sofia Colicchio is a free spirit5, loud and untamed. Antonia Russo is thoughtful, ever observing the world around her. Best friends since birth, they share everything from the brick wall that divides their apartments to the shadow cast by their fathers' unspoken community: the Family. Sunday dinners gather them to feast, discuss business, and renew the intoxicating bond born of blood and love. But the disappearance of Antonia's father drives a whisper-thin wedge between the girls as they grow into women, wives, mothers, and leaders. Their hearts expand in tandem with Red Hook and Brooklyn around them, even as they push against society's expectations and fight to preserve their complex but life-sustaining friendship. One fateful night their loyalty to each other and the Family will be tested. Only one of them can pull the trigger before it's too late.
