    *Starred Review* "I am a daring enigma," states precocious, 13-year-old Eulabee as she gives us a tour of mid–1980s Sea Cliff, a tony San Francisco neighborhood with views of the Golden Gate Bridge, celebrities, houses with dark histories, fog, and a steep, rocky promontory separating two beaches that Eulabee and her best friend, Maria Fabiola, know how to scurry across between high tides. Eulabee's family is not wealthy. Her city native father owns a gallery, her Swedish mother is a nurse, but Eulabee attends the nearby all-girls' private school, biding her time with teachers lacking her level of mordant and mischievous intelligence. She relies on her friends, but tectonic forces shift when Maria suddenly turns alarmingly beautiful, and Eulabee, possessed of audacious integrity, refuses to go along with Maria's increasingly dangerous fabrications. Eulabee is ostracized; Maria disappears. Intently observant, acidly funny, stoic, and smart, Eulabee is an incandescent creation, and Vida (The Diver's Clothes Lie Empty, 2015), whose polished and incisive prose is in the Didion mode, inflects this droll and sensitive coming-of-age tale, a cool match for Claire Messud's The Burning Girl (2017), with eviscerating social commentary. A nimble and arresting drama about the spell cast by beauty, the compulsion to lie, the valor of forthrightness, and the inevitability of the inexplicable. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
