Alice’s life is about to change.

She’s a skinny orphan. She’s never been able to hear too well. And she can’t speak too well, either. The only person who seems to care for her—one of the nuns at the orphanage—gets taken away from Alice in a freak accident.

And then one day somebody calls Alice by the wrong name.

Miami, she says.

Miami Shaw.

Miami Shaw, who may be Alice’s twin sister.

Who lives only a few miles away.

Who has what Alice has always dreamed of—a whole wonderful family. But is there a place in that family for Alice?

From bestselling author Gregory Maguire comes a funny, heartrending story of the strength of sisterhood and the struggle to find a family of one's own.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Affectionate humor and a particularly well-defined setting lend distinction to this touching novel set in 1968…Characterizations of the Catholic environment are sharp and funny. Some poignant, genuinely suspenseful moments express, among other truths, the value of individuality.” 

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Feisty and authentic.” 

    Booklist

  • “Poignant yet bracingly unsentimental, a novel with the clear ring of authenticity.”   

    Kirkus Reviews

    " Lots of local Albany references. "

    " I really enjoyed this book when I read it in middle school. Anything with nuns you can pretty much expect to be solid. Interesting that the same author wrote "Wicked"-- two totally opposite ends of the spectrum. "

    " Being one of the seemingly few people who didn't like the Wicked series, I was wary of picking this book. But it was so sweet - but complex from a child perspective. "

    " I chose this book because I really like Gregory Maguire as an author, but after reading about 1/3 of it I put it down, very dissappointed. I couldn't see where the story was going and just couldn't "get into it" which is very rare for me. THEN, I found out that's it's a Young Adult novel (missed that somehow) and decided to start it again with that in mind. And, when I got about halfway through I enjoyed the rest of the book. Definitely a great read for young people, and not a complete waste of time for adults. "
