The Sunshine Crust Baking Factory tells of Sid, who arrives in New York City in 1995 eager to join the anarchist world. She gets a tattoo and joins in all the countercultural world that squatting entails, believing herself clever for her choices-but the Lower East Side is losing empty buildings, the existing squat are full, and only in the very different Brooklyn does Sid get the chance to occupy a squat under circumstances she never dreamed of. The angst and passion of a witty, determined young rebel makes for a saga that is compelling and vivid, and a story that will draw in any young rebel who has dreamed of bucking convention.
