About this product
- DescriptionIn 1995, Isabel Montgomery was abandoned by her father in a downtown Manhattan hotel room, and the world of her childhood fell apart. After years undercover, he was exposed as one of America's most wanted fugitives, for his role in violent anti-Vietnam protests. In 2011, Isabel is a twenty-seven-year-old star reporter - despite a bad attitude and a substance-abuse problem - and she's about to put her career on the line by writing a New York Times front-page story on the Obama administration's unconstitutional surveillance of its citizens. Forced into hiding after the story breaks, she takes refuge in her grandparents' abandoned home. There, surrounded by the past she's run from for years, she makes a discovery that sees her turn her investigative skills on her own family to finally understand the truth about everything that led her to this moment. You're A Big Girl Now is a gripping, intelligent thriller that questions the morals and politics of America in the contemporary Age of Surveillance.
