Tatiana "Pluta" Spektor was a mostly happy, if awkward, young girl--until her sociologist father was disappeared during Argentina's Dirty War. Sent a world away by her grieving mother to attend boarding school outside New York City, Pluta wrestles along with the unresolved tragedy and at last runs away: to the streets of Brooklyn in 1980, where she figuratively--and literally--spreads her wings. Told with haunting fabulist imagery by debut novelist Anca L. Szil gyi, this searing tale of love, loss, estrangement, and coming of age is an unflinching exploration of the personal devastation wrought by political repression.
