Summary
  • "Gregory Maguire transforms Hans Christian Andersen's classic story "The Wild Swans" into an Italian-American girl's coming-of-age, set in atmospheric 1960s New York"--
  • Following her brother's death and her mother's emotional breakdown, Laura now lives in Manhattan, in a lonely townhouse she shares with her old-world, strict grandparents. But the arrangement may be temporary. The quiet, awkward teenager has been getting into trouble at home and has been expelled from her high school. When Christmas is over and the new year begins, Laura may find herself at boarding school in Montreal. Nearly unmoored from reality through her panic and submerged grief, Laura is startled when a handsome swan boy with only one wing lands on her roof. Hiding him from her ever-bickering grandparents, Laura tries to build the swan boy a wing so he can fly home. But the task is too difficult to accomplish herself. Little does Laura know that her struggle to find help for her new friend parallels that of her grandparents, who are desperate for a distant relative's financial aid to save the family store
