This was one of the most enjoyable books I've read in a long time. A thoughtful balance of humor and wit, sobering realism, and provocative social commentary presented by two seemingly different, yet philosophically similar perspectives of a 54 year old widowed concierge and a 12 year old daughter of a well-to-do family who live in same the building. This book's well written, highly intelligent prose follows a leisurely pace with a gentle charm that engages the heart along with the mind.
