The font and the picture on the cover certainly exude New York energy. As a non-New Yorker I'm not sure I know exactly what that means, but I like the vibes it gives me. The content itself was incredibly intriguing. I love a good growing up story, and I love hearing about places where the people make it feel like home. This sounds like the best book for that. Already the characters are exciting and I would love to learn more about them.
