Dana Czapnik’s The Falconer, an athlete comes of age in New York with Donna Freed

Dana chose the early 1990’s to set her novel of a young woman athlete coming of age in New York City. These were the first women who were the full beneficiaries of the first wave of feminism. But, as we know, it wasn’t a perfect world. Seventeen year old Lucy, secretly in love with her best friend, privileged Percy, looks around her for positive female role models with little luck. Steeped in the pick-up basketball games on the edges of the city, Central Park and the gritty club scene… you will cheer as Lucy finds her own path.
