Synopsis: Italy, the mid 90s. Bookish, tomboy Leda is dating the bad boy of her dreams. Is it love? Is she ready for her first time? Steamy at times, always emotional, the narration is authentic and gripping, raw and unapologetic in denouncing the hypocrisy of a society that would rather see pregnant teens than have an honest conversation about sex. Funny, moving, brutal, and sexy, this read is recommended to adults and teens alike. Breathtaking Northern Italy, including Padua, Liguria, and the incredible Island of Elba, adds to the charm of this addictive novel.
