In her first novel, a famed cartoonist tells the sensitive story of a young girl's coming of age in the 1960s. "Deft and deceptively simple . . . Ms. Barry has an impeccable ear, and this funny, intricate, and finally heartbreaking story exquisitely captures an American childhood".--The New York Times.

Shelves: plays
I have three problems with this play:
- a slow beginning,
- not enough work on establishing the friendship between Edna and Bonna,
- a quick, depressing end that is reduced in emotional impact, given #2.
