Welcome to Glenfair, New Jersey's Little Moscow, where
fifteen-year-old Alyssa Bondar lives with her Russian-born, Jewish
parents. In their culture, drinking is as traditional as blinchiki
and piroshkis. So when her mum starts having bad days, it seems
like Alyssa's the only one who notices - or cares. Alyssa would
love to focus on regular stuff like her first kiss with Keith, her
cute track team partner-or simply come home without dread of what
she might find. But someone has to clean up her mum's mess. Her dad
is steeped in work, the evening news, and denial. Her best friend
Lana is busy-shamelessly vying for a place with the popular crowd
who ridicule their Russian heritage. It's up to Alyssa to save her
mum - and her family. But who will be there to catch Alyssa when
her mum's next fall off the wagon drags her down, too?
