Emmie Wilcox was only six when her sister, Roxy, was thrown out of their New York City apartment. Their stern father's military style left no room for rebellion, and Roxy was continually defiant and rebellious. Emmie is obedient, respectful. Two sisters, total opposites - yet Emmie is secretly obsessed with the mystery and imposed silence surrounding Roxy: What had she finally done to deserve being cast out of her home? Sometimes she fantasizes that she is more like Roxy than she appears. She wants excitement, and being a good girl all the time is harder than it seems. Finally learning that Roxy is a highly paid escort to wealthy and powerful men, Emmie goes behind her father's back to track down and spy on the sister she can't help but be fascinated with.
"Narrator Amy Rubinate does an excellent job voicing Emmie's insecure, breathy whispers, her mother's French accent, and Roxy's confident tones. Listeners who enjoy family drama, transparent plots, and teenage angst will enjoy this book." (Library Journal)

YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Every time I got in my car, the first thing I did was turn this on my radio and I would sit in the car 30 min after I got home to listen to it. I played it while at the gym and would have at work if I could have. I hated and was sad the day that it ended. I couldn't wait to get part two!
