German Greta Stolenbauer catches her boyfriend cheating on her with a “midget”. The big woman knocks Frank out with one punch before leaving their shared apartment. Now she needs a place to stay that is big enough to store her furniture that travels with her.

Texan Danielle Porter moves to the Big Apple because the wannabe author hopes that the relocation will provide her the material to write magazine articles. Her efforts from Amarillo have all been rejected. Upon arriving in the city, she suffers sticker shock as the cost of renting a dump is beyond her means; she still needs a place to stay.

These three young human females meet and share an apartment together though each is quite different than the others. Will they become friends sharing joys and disappointments or are they ships passing through the night?

The three characters are intelligent intriguing individuals whose contrasts make for a fine character study. Fans will enjoy following the exploits, daring deeds, and flops as each of the stars navigate their respective life in the Big Apple. Often amusing and filled with angst, readers will appreciate Jill Ireland's homage to Manhattan, rent and all.
