Often, she is wearing puff-sleeves. Do not be misled. The opening sentence concerns haemorrhoids: it is relatively tame. By page two, the heroine is reminiscing about anal sex.

We can call this the Palahniuk Principle. The thing is, though, these books seldom actually are important. Being sexual without being sexy is not Oh my good God. There really is no way that I can describe to you the lengths to which the 18 year-old Helen will to prove that she understands - and thus enjoys- sex far better than anyone who preceded her on this earth.
And, I can offer you the following guidelines: Do not read this book if: 1. You are ill - this book is not soothing, it will not make you feel better. This goes double if you are sad. You are eating - seriously. You will not want anything to enter your body in any capacity while you are reading this book. You equate promiscuity with feminism - Yeah, this book is not going to help un-muddy those waters for you.
You are thinking about getting a divorce - Helen pretty clearly seems to think all her problems would be solved if only her parents would get back together; so, unless you want your daughter to end up disgusting, you will make that relationship work.
On the other hand, there are a couple of good reasons a person might want to read this book: 1. And your kids are not perfect. Something that has endured, so you know it will stand up to whatever vile things Wetlands throws at it. This is why I spent the whole book thinking "You know, I should really read Proust ".
And, of course, I will let you know how that goes.
And she seems like such a nice girl...
