    Description

    Diana stands before the mirror, preening with her best friend, Maureen. Suddenly, a classmate enters holding a gun, and 17-year-old Diana sees her life dance before her eyes. In a moment, the future she was just imagining is sealed by a horrific decision she is forced to make.

    This novel takes us through Diana's uncertain steps into womanhood: her awkward, heated forays into sex; her fresh, fragile construction of an identity; and her equally tenuous steps as an adult. Kasischke has crafted a story of consciousness that encompasses the truth of a teenager's world and the profound transformation of that world at midlife. Resonant and deeply stirring, this novel finds piercing beauty in the midst of a nightmare that echoes like a dirge beneath each new spring.

    Horrible!

    I absolutely hated this book...by far the worst book I've ever listened to. There was absolutely no point to the story and the end literally left me asking 'are you kidding me?' The constant description of the smells of random things was totally irritating. I could not wait for this book to end. Don't waste your time.
