Reviews

"Torres debuts with an incisive and keenly observed story of girls and women navigating life in Woodside, N.Y... Even more impressive is the vibrant portrait of Queens, where gender, skin color, and ethnicity are prime factors in shaping the characters' social positions. Torres hits every note perfectly." -- Publishers Weekly (starred review)
