Iris needs a bra. Her mother doesn't think so. Mami thinks Iris should be spending the summer safely in their apartment, learning to type. With the elevator broken and the stairs dark and reeking, Iris takes to the fire escape at the rear of the building. She gets into some amazing adventures and meets some amazing neighbors. Take the bitter boy with the peashooter, or Tattoo Man and his pit bull, or the scary old woman everyone calls the Cat Lady. Each one has a story, and Iris gets involved, hilariously, with all of them and then some. Frustrated (and growing), Iris hand-letters a flyer: Chores up the wazoo? Hate climbing stairs? Need help with errands, shopping, your kids? Don't say, No, I can't afford it. Just ask Iris Only clever, funny, unstoppable Iris could use The Famous Dornbush Typing Method: Let Dr. Mildred Dornbush Help You Avoid Common Typing Pitfalls as a lifesaver for her building, forty-plus cats, a new best friend, and herself.
