Wow. Diffenbaugh has created a masterpiece that is hard to put down, and impossible to forget. The novel is set in modern day San Francisco, and references many cities and streets any Bay Area native will recognize. The structure of the novel is fascinating -- alternating stories of an 18-year-old Victoria, newly emancipated from California's Foster Child system, and flashbacks of a young Victoria's challenging childhood. Finally, when the stories become intertwined, the novel simply blooms.
