Review: Kira has moved from her grandmother's upstate home to live with her rock-musician father and younger half brothers in a squalid New York City apartment. While Kira is performing with her father in the subway, she meets Jake, who has trouble speaking because of a severe stutter, and his best friend, Eugene. The characterization, an authentic sense of place, and a good mix of serious and funny scenes make this a top-notch novel.
