She’s fled from her family in Providence, Rhode Island, and she’s broken off her tempestuous relationship with a boy named Billy, who’s enlisted in the army.  The city doesn’t exactly welcome her with open arms. She gets a bit part as a chorus girl in a Broadway show, but she knows that’s not going to last very long. She needs help – and then it comes, from an unexpected source.  Nate Benedict is Billy’s father. He’s also a lawyer involved in the mob. He makes Kit a deal – he’ll give her an apartment and introduce her to a new crowd. All she has to do is keep him informed about Billy…and maybe do him a favor every now and then.”  – Goodreads.  Sounds great, right?!  Sign up, get the book and start reading!  Judy will be here Thursday, October 18, from 7 – 8:30pm.  Great books, kids and authors together…a magical combination!  Little Joe’s Books, 25 Katonah Avenue, Katonah, NY 10536, 914-232-7278.  Open 7 Days A Week.  Visit www.littlejoesbooks.com.
