    Lucy is a high school student growing up in New York in 1993 She s a so called pizza bagel a mix of Jewish and Italian heritage She s not afraid to speak her mind, even if it s to trash talk, and she s a talented basketball player, comfortable playing among men and boys and she knows she s good, too I m not just the leading scorer at my school, I m the leading scorer in the entire league for two years running, which you would think would garner me the same amount of respect Percy gets But [...]

    Sometimes a book finds me that I would not have found by myself That is how The Falconer by Dana Czapnik came into my life as an unexpected package from the publisher.Reading it was about a seventeen year old girl in 1993 New York City whose passion was basketball and who has a crush on her best friend Percy, I wondered if I would care for the book Sure, there was advance praise from Column McCann, Salmon Rushdie, Chloe Benjamin but could I relate to the story I opened the book and started r Som [...]

    Beautifully written coming of age tale about a 17 year old girl in early 90s NYC, obsessed with basketball and the unrequited love of her best friend The praise rolling in from Salman Rushdie, Ann Pathcett and Rivka Galchen is deserved I wish I d had this book to give to my daughter in her teens while knowing she might enjoy it even now, from her later perspective Positive proof that the oldest stories in the world e.g coming of age can be told with brilliance and verve countless time Beautifull [...]

    The Falconer is a story about a girl growing up in a particular space and time, the Upper West Side of New York City in the early 1990s Whether or not that place and time speaks to you, the novel is really for anyone whose gone through the pain of growing up and having your illusions slowly, and sometimes all at once, shattered If you ve ever had the experience of discovering that the world is not exactly as you imagine it to be and that life is complicated than the neat boxes we try to p The Fa [...]

    Not a book I would have normally picked up, as it is about a young woman high school basketball player, but I saw the blurbs, gave it a try, and it won me over I really found myself caring about the protagonist and couldn t wait to see how she grew as a person and what happened to her Feels like it should become something of a classic Beautifully written, absorbing, and realistic And the New York City scenes and the relationships are not cliches, but authentic.
