Student Lucile Tucker works part-time at the library of the large university she attends in Chicago to help pay her tuition.

Good story, not awesome, but good.

(4 Sterne)

Although there are better books out there, this is above average. I enjoyed the narrator very much. It's always interesting to see the changes in society after long periods of time.

one of my favorite readers
