Quick Book Review: “You All Grow Up and Leave Me: A Memoir of Teenage Obsession” by Piper Weiss
This was a disappointing book. The blurb intimated that this was more of a true crime story, about Gary Wilensky, a tennis instructor and twisted child predator who stalked and pursued rich girls on Manhattan’s Upper East Side in the ‘90s. Only a small part of the book deals with Wilensky and his crimes. Instead, most of the book consists of the random ramblings of a privileged teenager and her rich, upscale life. I just didn’t find it very interesting. The only captivating parts were those related to Wilensky, but there were just too few of them to keep the book interesting. Frustrating.
