Valentina Mayakova was abandoned at a Russian orphanage, where she spent her first few years. At five, she was adopted by a rich American couple and taken to New York, where she became Wallis Stoneman, a pampered, but aggressive and stubborn girl. By her fifteenth birthday, Wallis, angry and defiant, left her home for a life on the streets of New York. One day, while trying to make a new fake ID, Wally accidentally discovers a letter from her birthmother, with a heartfelt note and a valuable stone, and starts looking for her real mother all over the city. Of course she is not the only one looking for these stones. There is, of course, the issue of predictability. Knowing everything that was going to happen at least fifty pages before it did and knowing which characters were going to die the second they showed up. This book is dry and the plot is over used.

Definitely a great novel from start to finish!

Had me going on the edge of my seat for several scenes, and with each new clue to figuring out who Wally's mother was, it is astounding.

I recommended it wholeheartedly!
