They don’t see her because she’s too smart to get noticed. She knows how to dress and where to stand. She knows how to drift up through the sweating crowds, maybe sticking close to this woman who could be her mother, to that man who could be her father. She knows how to keep her face blank so it doesn’t seem as if she’s noticing that woman’s fat little purse or that man’s thick wallet bulging inside his jacket. She knows how to look serious and sensible, like a good child.
“Though the story is gritty and violent, it is written without the curse language one expects from urban literature… Readers will be completely enthralled by the action and intrigue.” -- Library Media Connection
