Gloria has been let out of jail on condition that she work for the FBI. This involves going to a fancy mansion on Long Island, and participating in all the partying that goes on. This part of the novel is really a re-telling of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s THE GREAT GATSBY, aimed towards a younger audience.
At least, in this third (and last) novel, Ms. Larkin ties up all the loose threads, and we feel as if our young friends can now get on with their lives, as they are now more mature after a considerable amount of heartbreak. Suitable for tweens and teens. Four stars.
