Review

 FourStars

A totally enthralling novel, a real page turner. Full of mother/daughter angst, finding your sexuality apprehension, and, trepidation to others perceived perceptions.
Different from other novels in the way the author characterizes Penelope’s growing maturity and self understanding. This is clearly seen as the novel progresses.
Written in almost a documentary/drama way, anyone on the verge of coming out or having difficulty in their sexual orientation, would really find this novel of interest. The way asexuality is handled is very refreshing and informative.
My only criticism  would be the way the relationship between Penelope and her Mother appears biased towards Penelope’s feelings.
This is an emotional love story, full of realism, but with a real feel good factor.
