Cleary her father¿s daughter, attorney Grace Campisi has always been a responsible person while setting goals for herself including earning money by doing hard work, dedication, and success at getting a partnership at her law form. Her sister Perry is more of a live life for today as she is more like their mother with no cares in the world as they let others deal with problems.--------------- Now Perry arrives at Grace¿s apartment nine months pregnant, pleading poverty and no father, her reluctant sister takes her in. Perry gives birth, but six weeks later she is acting as always: selfishly without a look back Perry deserts her child leaving Grace to clean up more than just excrement. Grace must decide between her plan for success which means giving up her niece for adoption as her sister cannot be trusted to take care of anyone but herself or raising the baby.------------ The comparison between the sisters make for an interesting tale as the audience wonders how the Campisi siblings came form the same house. The story line is filled with angst as Grace must decide what to do when Perry decamps. Though the ending is to ribbon tied happily ever after, readers will appreciate this superb tale of two sisters.------------- Harriet KlausnerWas this review helpful?

I adored Patricia Kay's tale of two sisters, the partner-track attorney, Grace Campisi, and the prodigal Perry, who suddenly shows up at Grace's tiny Manhattan apartment nine months pregnant. When no other family member will bail Perry out of yet another terrible decision, Grace agrees to let her sister stay until the baby's born and she can get back on her feet. But Perry, being Perry, isn't any better at motherhood than you'd expect, which leaves Grace with one angry boyfriend, one lifetime career goal in jeopardy, one six-week-old infant, and no good choices. Grace's reactions ring true, as do those of friends and family members, and even Perry is portrayed with compassion. WHICH WAY IS UP is family drama at its best, and I especially enjoyed the quotes about sisters that head each chapter. This one is a real page turner and very highly recommended.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
