So far I've only had a chance to read the first chapter; I'm hoping to get more time soon. The review in Publisher's Weekly describes this novella as lesbian erotica, but it strikes me more as a good YA book with an unsuitable cover. So far, not quite the breathtaking beauty of A Year and a Day, but by the end of the first chapter I'm really dying to know what happens next.

Jennifer Williams I did not realize that PW called it lesbian erotica. I wouldn't call it that at all.

I get the feeling this was an example of a professional book reviewer judging a book by its cover.
