“Teen runaway Kit has a job as a chorus girl at a nightclub, but not much else. She is approached by her ex-boyfriend's father, who may or may not have Mafia ties, and he asks her to do him a little favor. In exchange, he'll set her up in an apartment and get her a better job. No strings attached ... right? This stylish and chilling story which has everything going for it will keep teen readers hooked.”

Description

From National Book Award winner Judy Blundell, the tale of a sixteen-year-old girl caught in a mix of love, mystery, Broadway glamour, and Mob retribution in 1950 New York.

When Kit Corrigan arrives in New York City, she doesn't have much. She's fled from her family in Providence, Rhode Island, and she's broken off her tempestuous relationship with a boy named Billy, who's enlisted in the army.

The city doesn't exactly welcome her with open arms. She gets a bit part as a chorus girl in a Broadway show, but she knows that's not going to last very long. She needs help--and then it comes, from an unexpected source.
