Nora Lopez is 17 during the infamous New York summer of 1977, when the city is besieged by arson, a massive blackout, and a serial killer named Son of Sam who shoots young women on the streets. Nora's family life isn't going so well either: her bullying brother, Hector, is growing more threatening by the day, her mother is helpless and falling behind on the rent, and her father calls only on holidays. All Nora wants is to turn 17 and be on her own. And while there is a cute new guy who started working with her at the deli, is dating even worth the risk when the killer likes picking off couples who stay out too late? Award-winning author Meg Medina transports us to a time when New York seemed balanced on a knife-edge, with tempers and temperatures running high, to share the story of a young woman who discovers that the greatest dangers are often closer than we like to admit - and the hardest to accept.

Couldn't finish listening to this book.
This is basically written for middle school level reading. Immature and terribly boring. Definitely do not recommend.

Good book, good narrator
Loved the time period, subject, characters, writing, etc., and the performance was really great. I love when the narrator actually sounds like they're from the same area as the characters and can pronounce everything right (whether it's a real-world accent or a fantasy title's terminology).
