FICTION Mirriam-Goldberg, C.
On Hold Shelf
This coming of age story illuminates how a daring heart can turn a broken girl into a woman strong enough to craft a life of art and soul. Set in 1970's New Jersey, Divorce Girl focuses on teenage photographer Deborah Shapiro, whose parents' outrageous divorce lands her in the biggest flea market in the free world, a Greek diner with immigration issues, a radical suburban synagogue, a hippie-owned boutique, bowling alleys, beaches, and bagel shops. As her home explodes apart, a first love, a series of almost-mothers, and a comical collection of eccentric mentors show Deborah how to make art out of life, and life from the wreckage of a broken home. - taken from front inside flap.
