Summary, etc.:
Perdita Lee may appear your average British schoolgirl. Harriet Lee may seem just a working mother trying to penetrate the school social hierarchy. But there are signs that they might not be as normal as they think they are. As the book follows the Lees through encounters with jealousy, ambition, family grudges, work, wealth, and real estate, gingerbread seems to be the one thing that reliably holds a constant value.
