    It is the sort of book you wish it would take the whole summer to read. McDermott's Child of My Heart is like a literary version of the Nanny Diaries, this one beautifully written and over way too fast. Theresa's Eastern Long Island summers, taken up by babysitting for wealthier neighbours, is described so poignantly that anyone who reads it will feel like a 15 year old misfit for just a little while.
