    Italy, the mid-90s. Fifteen-year-old bookish tomboy Leda is dating the bad boy of her dreams. Is it love? Is she ready for her first time? Leda discovers at her own expense that life is not a fairy tale and she finds her own way to make sense of darkness, love, and friendship. Authentic, emotional, and gripping, this novel denounces the hypocrisy of a society that would rather see pregnant teens than having an honest conversation about sex.
