This is a frothy little piece of fiction about a young girl who comes to New York to work as a summer intern at a magazine very much like The New Yorker /she is unaware that her upstairs neighbor, the rather extravagantly eccentric Lulu, is the mother who gave her up for adoption 21 years earlier. Nor does she realize that Lulu worked at the same magazine where she is an intern or that the Senior editor may very well be her father.

How all is revealed and how Edith grows into herself makes for a wonderful summer read. ( )
