She needs the help of Mary and her mother, Scarlett, who embark on a road trip to the past. Four generations of women travel on a midnight car journey. One of them is dead, one of them is dying, one of them is driving, and one of them is just starting out. <p>Praise for "A Greyhound of a Girl"STARRED REVIEW"A warm, witty, exquisitely nuanced multigenerational story."<br> -"Kirkus Reviews," starred review <br>STARRED REVIEW"This elegantly constructed yet beautifully simple story, set in Ireland and spun with affection by Booker Prize-winner Doyle, will be something different for YA readers.
