I read excerpts of Lunch in Brooklyn years ago in Sassy magazine and was delighted to hear that it was finally available in its entirety. The book tells the story of Kate's eighth grade year in New York City in the late 1970s. It's a beautiful, accurate portrayal of the trials and tribulations of being a 14, from the awkwardness of dating, the horribleness of teenage girls and the blase experimentation with drugs.

Although the book wasn't deliberately written to be YA, I'm so sad that this didn't

This is a beautiful, and achingly accurate portrayal of the highs and lows of middle school! I must emphasize the beauty of it since now I can appreciate it, being many moons from junior high! I don't remember the excerpts in Sassy, but I'm happy I stumbled upon it now. This is a wonderful summer read, and although there are teens at the heart of the story I think it will be best enjoyed by us grown-folks, especially Gen X-ers or older. I would love to see what happens next!
