A coming of age story driven by ... tournament bridge? Yes, and it totally works. I loved the characters and their journey reminded me much of my own as a young adult, realizing that my parents and other older people in my life actually had lives and had been once been young, as well.

Although it's possible to skip through the bridge stuff, I enjoyed trying to follow it. I did well for a while, but they lost me toward the end with all those bidding rules.
