A zestful account of Lucinda's never-to-be-forgotten 'orphan' year. When her parents go abroad for a year in the 1890s, Lucinda, freed from the customary restraints imposed by 'Mam'selle,' explores New York on her roller skates and makes many friends, including a fruit vendor's son, a hansom-cab driver, and an impoverished but talented violinist. Sawyer's Newbery Medal-winning portrait of her own childhood is as fresh and compelling as ever.

A Newbery Medal Winner!

Growing up in a well-to-do family with strict rules and routines can be tough for a ten-year-old girl who only wants to roller skate. But when Lucinda Wyman's parents go overseas on a trip to Italy and leave her behind in the care of Miss Peters and Miss Nettie in New York City, she suddenly gets all the freedom she wants! Lucinda zips around New York on her roller skates, meeting tons of new friends and having new adventures every day. But Lucinda has no idea what new experiences the city will show her.... Some of which will change her life forever.

“A refreshingly lively and genuine story.”—The New York Times
