    1. WESTSIDE is a novel of alternate history and parallel lives, but it is actually mystery than Sci fi Fantasy The voice of Gilda, the protagonist is witty and irreverent I loved her right away She s a plucky problem solver and her tiny mysteries she sets to solving all lead her to discovering the truth about why the Westside of Manhattan turned dark and DIFFERENT than the Eastside in 1914 This is a top notch mystery that will appeal to historical fiction fans as well.
