4.0 out of 5 stars A rewardingBildungsroman!
By Idarah on November 21, 2017
"When Alice fell down the rabbit hole, she fell slow. She had time to notice things on her way down—Oh, there’s a teacup! There’s a table! So things seemed almost normal to her while she was falling. Then she bumped down and rolled into Wonderland, and all hell broke loose."

I really love it when I turn to the last page of a book, and the ending is so thoroughly perfect, but not too perfect. Some questions still remain, retribution is administered, and sometimes there's cake. I think, however, that what makes a Bildungsroman so amazing is when the adolescent protagonist matures, and their view of the world is altered in the most beneficial way possible. This book followed that recipe to the "t" and I love the author for it!

"Truth, justice…I always thought they were absolutes, like God. And Mom. And apple pie. But you could make apple pie from Ritz crackers. You could make cakes without sugar. We learned how to fake things, during the war."

Set in Queens and Palm Beach in 1947, Blundell created a world that was utterly believable and rich, down to the cigarette jingles. I felt like an awkwad, gawky fifteen year-old that hadn't quite grown into my bra and didn't really stick up for my values. That's good character writing. But Evie is also an observer, and the reader's only medium to the sinister events that take place that autumn in '47. Seeing things through her eyes, innocent but questioning, was so accurate and foreboding. I was fully invested from the first page.

I also loved Blundell's gregarious "Acknowledgments" where I learned that David Leviathan was her editor, and listed memoirs and history books about the era that helped her shape the novel. I'd love to read more by her and can't wait to look into the referenced works.
