Enter a world of nihilism and self destruction. Enter a world of rape, incest, and trauma. Enter a world of violence, drugs, and prostitution. Enter an Innocent World.

Ami believes in nothing, hopes for nothing, and turns tricks because it's something to do. Her journey from the pit of despair to the precarious edge of something else captures the part of being seventeen that never makes it into words.

I don't really know why I read this book. I guess I bought it cause it kept coming up in that 'readers who bought this also bought' thing when I was looking for Kanehara novels. In a way I almost wish I hadn't read this book. In a way it was terrible, because the content of the book was so hard to swallow. I don't even know what I think about this, this book has left me very uncertian. I can't even describe it. I mean I guess its good that Ami found a reason for her life but everything that she did to get there and the life that she left behind was so disturbing that I don't even know how to feel about it. This book is weird.
