(TW: SA) The book follows Marin through her senior year of high school in the aftermath of being sexually assaulted by one of her teachers. The assault has affected her school work, her friendships, and her relationships, and she is now trying to process and work through the situation, in part by starting a feminist book club.

Reading through the story, I cried several times, as this situation and ones like it are the reality for many victims of sexual assault. The descriptions of Marin and her responses are very realistic, as it clearly shows that the aftermath is not a clean, linear process that can be shoved into a box and forgotten about. It is very much worth a read.… (mais)

Carrie es la quinta esencia de la mujer problemática que se empeña en buscar el amor donde no debe y quien narra las aventuras de cuatro mujeres, amigas entre sí. Todas ellas tienen un carácter liberal y no tienen pudor a la hora de hablar de sexo, aunque cada una de una forma diferente. Samantha, la cuarentona productora de cine, algo adicta al sexo, cuya generación conoce de sobra la efímera naturaleza de la belleza y la juventud; Charlotte, una romántica que sigue creyendo en el amor; Miranda, que intenta entender el mundo masculino, y Carrie, quizás la más normal de todas… sin olvidarnos de los hombres que solo se acuestan con modelos perfectas y neuróticas, o de aquellos fanáticos de las bicis y las mochilas que se niegan a comportarse como adultos.… (mais)
