Some say New York City is a "melting pot". I think not so much. Positively scads of vastly different folks exist in close proximity. But the vastly different doesn't go away. That's the secret! In this book a poor kid gets mixed up with a lot of rich ones. Uptown, Downtown, Eastside, Westside ... she sees it all. But by remembering her upbringing, being true to herself, and minding her manners she becomes the most fortunate (rich!) of any. Fascinating and touching.
