I won this book from First Reads but I already had read books by Lesley Kagen and liked them so I did not mind reading Good Graces. This is a sequel to an earlier book "Whistling in the Dark" but you are not lost if you don't read the first. This book takes place in 1960 and is about 2 sisters (Irish twins)growing up after the loss of their Daddy. On his death bed, Daddy asked the eldest, Sally to "take care of Troo (Trooper) and keep her safe". What a responsiblity to put on an 11 year old. Trooper a.k.a. Margaret is a handful for anyone. Reading this book is like reliving your childhood all over again with fun, fears,friends and others during one summer.
