The beautiful Mrs. Longtree often received morning callers in her bedroom. This morning, gowned in pastel chiffon, she summoned her teen-age daughter, Chloe. . . .
“Be happy, my dear, and just don’t drink too much—you’ll last longer. By the way, do you drink?”
“Yes, I more or less drink,” the girl answered.
“What has happened to you this summer? It’s none of my business, of course,” her mother said with a wicked smile. “You’re changed. . . . YOU’RE NOT A LITTLE GIRL ANY MORE.”
A bold, sophisticated novel about a young girl from one of New York’s slightly decadent “best” families.
