The book is a debut novel and as such, it is an outstanding piece of work, and a tad unusual which makes this coming of age story all the more enjoyable. The story pans the teen years of Eugenia as she adjusts to life in the US and starts to experiment with drugs, sex and explores the seedy dark underbelly of Los Angeles to the counter culture Topanga Canyon.
