What other readers are saying about this title:
Cora Carlisle signs on to chaperone 15-year-old Louise Brooks when she goes to NYC to study dance, a summer that would launch Louise as a 1920s ‘It’ Girl. Cora has her own reasons for going to NYC. The book is interesting on two levels. There’s the slice of 1920s life in a Middle Western town—Wichita, KS, in this case—and the look at silent screen star Louise Brooks’ life—fictional though this account is. There’s also a story of secrets and transcending them to be true to oneself. Sometimes Moriarty succeeds in her telling; sometimes she falls a bit short.
