About THE YEAR OF NEEDY GIRLS: Bradley, Massachusetts, is in many ways a typical small New England town—the green, the churches, the brick library. But a river divides Bradley in half—on one side, the East End: tight triple-deckers, Most Precious Blood parish, and the Brazilian immigrant community; and on the other, the West End: renovated Victorians, Brandywine Academy, families with last names as venerable as the Mayflower. Deirdre Murphy and her partner Sara Jane (SJ) Edmonds have just moved to the West End of Bradley, where Deirdre teaches French to girls at tony Brandywine Academy. A dedicated teacher from a working-class background, she is well loved by her students, and this particular fall, living for the first time in an open relationship with SJ, in their first house, should be her happiest yet. But the murder of ten-year-old Leo Rivera from the East End changes everything—for Deirdre and SJ, for the girls at Brandywine, and for all of Bradley. And when Deirdre is falsely accused of sexually molesting one of her students, the entire town erupts.
