The cross-section of people who use the words lumpen/proletariat and beg to be married to a rich man and love Yanni is somewhere around zero. Addie has a lot of characteristics but they don’t exactly line up to create a person.
“One year is much like another in our city’s history of oppression.” is so good, but doesn’t fit Addie, even in her awakening state.
I don’t really remember much about this book besides it was short. Otherwise I don’t think I would have finished it. I’m a dick.
