Summary
Justin Kramon<U+2019>s debut novel, Finny, is a sweeping, enchanting voyage, an insightful story about a young woman<U+2019>s complicated path to adulthood. We meet Finny Short as an observant, defiant fourteen-year-old who can<U+2019>t make sense of her family<U+2019>s unusual habits: Her mother offers guidance appropriate for a forty-year-old socialite; her father quotes Nietzsche over pancakes. Finny figures she<U+2019>s stuck with this lonely lot until she meets Earl Henckel, a boy who comes from an even stranger place than she does. Unhappy with Finny<U+2019>s budding romance with Earl, her parents ship her off to Thorndon boarding school. But mischief follows Finny as she befriends New York heiress Judith Turngate, a girl whose charm belies a disquieting reckless streak. Finny<U+2019>s relationships with Earl and Judith open her up to dizzying possibilities of love and loss and propel her into a remarkable adventure spanning twenty years and two continents. Justin Kramon has given us a wickedly funny odyssey with a moving and original love story at its core. Finny introduces us to an unforgettable heroine, a charmingly intricate world, and an uncommonly entertaining and gifted young novelist. -- Publisher's description
