Jennifer (sassejenn) | 4 comments Looking for a YA book I read in the late 80s / early 90s about a pre-teen or teenage girl living in NYC, kind of an ugly ducking struggle, with a beautiful sister or step-sister named Towny or Townsend. Also remember she burned her mouth eating pizza (not badly, just a random detail). Thanks!

Was this a coming of age type book? Adventure?

Pamela Love | 1088 comments Kind of a stretch, but possibly The Secret in Miranda's Closet, by Sheila Greenwald? The Secret In Miranda's Closet
It's for younger readers, and Townsend (called Towny) is the daughter of a friend of her mom's.
