Illuminate

Natasha Radojcic's You Don't Have to Live Here is one powerhouse of a coming-of-age story. The novel's main character, Sasha, is smart, spirited, and tough as she is sent by her disapproving family to Cuba, Yugoslavia, Greece, and back to Yugoslavia. Eventually she moves to New York on her own, but no matter where she goes, she has a way of stirring trouble around her. The narrative is concise, poetic, and lovely.
