From the PublisherAdriana Trigiani author of Big Stone Gap, Big Cherry Holler, and Milk Glass Moon Lisa Gabriele writes with deep meaning, truth, and humor in her wonderful debut novel about growing up. I loved the world Gabriele created, rich in detail and emotion. Faith DiNapoli is a delight: her struggles are universal and her aim is true.
Louisa Ermelino author of The Black Madonna and The Sisters Mallone Faith DiNapoli is my kind of girl: tough, honest, and trying hard to be a good Catholic while shoplifting cute clothes, lusting after her neighbor, and reading her mother's diary. Gabriele's created a no-holds-barred portrait of hardscrabble family life and a character who will win your heart and break it too. A wise, witty, and masterful debut.
Chuck Klosterman author of Fargo Rock City Every guy has this fantasy about meeting a nice Catholic girl who's clever and smart and playful, only to discover that — secretly, behind closed doors — her mind is just a little bit dirty. Lisa Gabriele is the literary incarnation of that fantasy.
