Dear Librarians,

Unplanned pregnancy always leads to complications. But how those complications multiply if the year is 1935. In my novel, MODERN GIRLS, set in the Lower East Side of NYC, both an immigrant mother, Rose, and her (unmarried!) daughter, Dottie, are troubled to find themselves pregnant. The women are forced to make choices that will challenge their beliefs, betray their traditions, and upset the very world they live in.

A Goodreads Choice Awards semi-finalist and an Historical Novelist Society editor's choice, MODERN GIRLS is what New York Times bestselling author Pam Jenoff calls "a heartwarming, haunting, and memorable debut."
