"Girls of Tender Age: A Memoir"


If you're looking for a great summer read, pick up "Girls of Tender Age: A Memoir" by Mary-Ann Tirone Smith.

"A masterful fiction writer tells her own story: one little girl dies, the other comes of age and gives voice to herself and her murdered friend. Riveting, heartbreaking, hilarious, I loved this book for its compassion, its vividness, and its flashes of justifiable anger. A life-affirming read." – Wally Lamb, author of She's Come Undone

I read this and loved it! It is my favorite Maryann Tirone Smith book to date. I also see where her and her son (my cousin!) Jere are writing a baseball mystery together. That sounds like it will be fun to read.
