At sixteen, Grace Caton boards her first airplane, leaving behind her small village in Trinidad for New York City. In the colorful world of Crown Heights, Brooklyn, Grace finds herself surrounded by other immigrants also finding their way in America, and there's much to learn about her new city. Most challenging of all is figuring out her new employers, the Bruckners, an upper-middle-class family in Manhattan. Grace's duties range from taking daily nude photos of her pregnant boss to dressing in a traditional maid's costume to serve Passover seder. But Grace loves four-year-old Ben, and she's intrigued by the alternately friendly and scheming nannies who spend their days in Union Square Park, and by their constant gossip about who's hired, who's fired, and who, scandalously, married her boss. As the seasons change, Grace discovers that the Bruckners have surprising secrets of their own, and her life becomes increasingly complicated and confusing. But opportunities appear in the most unexpected places, and Grace realizes that she's living in a city -- and a world -- where anything is possible.
