Ebook description:

Adele Pietra has heard her mom say that her future is carved within the same brilliantly hued granite her father and brother cleave from the Stony Creek mine: she is to marry a quarryman. However when Adele’s brother, Charles, dies in a mining accident, Adele sees the prospect to vary her life. Enrolling at Yale as Charles, Adele assumes his id — and gender — as a option to depart behind her mom’s expectations and the restrictions of her provincial Connecticut city. To her personal shock, hair chopped and chest certain, Adele falls in naturally with a vigorous crew of undergraduates: the Jewish Harry Persky along with his slick Manhattan know-how, the quiet and mysterious legacy scholar Phineas, and the lanky, charismatic Wick. And in some ways, Adele faces her freshman yr at Yale as would any undergraduate boy: she dreads invasive PE examinations and appears ahead to dances, experiments with cigarettes and reads the classics. By means of her work with a questionable eugenics professor and her friendship with an area Italian household, Adele confronts her class and ethnicity as by no means earlier than, all of the whereas fearing that each her crush on Wick and her mom’s well-meaning interventions will put an finish to her delicate masquerade. One half social historical past, one half comingof-age story, On Borrowed Wings is an impeccably researched first novel that transports us to 1930s Yale, exhibiting us round by means of the eyes of an unlikely, interesting feminine narrator
