iblist.com user synopsis
We follow a young girl on her way to discovering the world and the people who live there. She may let these persons into her life, but only up to a point. She refuses to follow any leads or to let her life be dictated by the desires of other people. Her choices are not the ordinary ones, but love always comes first, even before sex. At the end of the story, she is alone, but in need of nobody.
The characters in this novel will stay with you for a while, so accurately are they described, in their failings, mostly, or even their less obvious or accepted desires. You will follow the unexpected twists of their intricate dance eagerly, and recognize some of your own ups and downs, with pleasure or dismay.
