    Translated from the Turkish, this novel revolves around a situat

    Translated from the Turkish, this novel revolves around a situation of intense drama. Bambi, 13, and her desperate, loving mother are on the run, always have been, and there is no one with them. Forget school. Forget baggage. They move from hotel to hotel, from Istanbul to London to New York to Tunisia to Goa, never staying long. Bambi knows she is beautiful, unlike her chain-smoking mom. Her mother does not want Bambi to grow up, and Bambi does not want to, and they recite bits of the Bambi story to each other all the time. But what are they running from? Bambi barely allows herself to ask the questions: Where is her father? Who is after them? What if the money runs out? Then there are occasional switches to other viewpoints: a hotel clerk, a lifeguard, a distant relative who remembers. Even with all the repetition, the young teen’s spare first-person, present-tense narrative holds you fast as suspense builds to the heartbreaking climax.
