From Library Journal
Cadence Roth is a heroine one will not soon forget. All of 31 inches tall, Cady played Mr. Woods, an E.T.-like character, in a hit movie a decade ago. Now 30 years old, she performs at birthday parties and bat mitzvahs, on the fringe of an industry that doesn't have much need for chubby dwarfs. In a strong and witty voice, Cady records daily life with her dizzy, star-struck roommate Renee, the physical challenge of turning on a shower, discrimination by people, and harassment by dogs. She begins a charming romance with a tall, handsome pianist and then, with her best friend, Jeff--a writer active in gay politics--she plots her comeback. Both a well-told story and a subtle fable about difference, this novel was penned by the author of the popular series "Tales of the City," of which Sure of You ( LJ 9/15/89) was the final installment. Recommended for public libraries.- Brian Kenney, Brooklyn P.L.
