This book is written well, and the first few chapters are very good; but it does degenerate into explicit descriptions of adolescent sex. The protagonist's sex life is introduced with an older man groping her and masturbating in front of her. Del (protagonist) accepts this as part of her sexual initiation, and is not scared of the older man's attentions. I do not believe this is realistic. Del then has sex with a young man who is a few years older than she. Her infatuation with him changes her life in a profound way.

I really looked forward to reading her only full length novel. It started out as I expected--a searching tale of a mother and daughter and how they related and why. BUT!! It, in my opinion, degenerated into a boring sex tale. I soon found that I didn't care one bit for the daughter.
