Did I love this book? No...Did I like this book? SureThe reason I read Fin & Lady by Cathleen Schine is 1) The main character is named Fin. 2) The novel takes place in NYC in the 1960s. Lady is Fin's older half sister, she becomes his guardian. I thought this novel could have been a short story. The story went around and around in a circle and didn't really pick up until page 183. Then I eagerly zoomed to the end or the fin of the book.
