Description

Bina has never forgotten the time she and her mother ran away from home. Her mother promised they would hitchhike to the city to escape Bina's cruel father and start over. But before they could even leave town, Bina had a new stepfather and two new stepsisters, and a humming sense of betrayal pulling apart the bond with her mother-a bond Bina thought was unbreakable. Eight years later, after too many lies and with trouble on her heels, Bina finds herself on the side of the road again, the city of her dreams calling for her. She has an old suitcase, a fresh black eye, and a room waiting for her at Catherine House, a young women's residence in Greenwich Village with a tragic history, a vow of confidentiality, and dark, magical secrets. There, Bina is drawn to her enigmatic downstairs neighbor Monet, a girl who is equal parts intriguing and dangerous. As Bina's lease begins to run out, and nightmare and memory get tangled, she will be forced to face the terrible truth of why she's come to Catherine House and what it will take for her to leave . . .

Professional reviews

"Narrator Sandy Rustin blurs the lines between the supernatural and real life in this ghostly story of a teenage runaway. Bina Tremper attempts to understand her mother's past while she escapes to a young woman's residence in New York City brimming with grim secrets and enigmatic residents. Rustin guides listeners between Bina's own painful past and murky present in a youthful and quizzical tone.The other Catherine House girls are voiced similarly, which adds to the cultish atmosphere of the Greenwich Village residence. As the bizarre plot unfolds, Rustin's gentle pacing guides listeners. While this novel is not for every listener, Rustin's narration will aid those looking for a mystery mixed with magical realism and a slow-paced coming-of-age story.
