When you read so many books, they start meshing into one another sometimes leaving you a little underwhelmed. And then, you delightfully stumble across this book and it knocks you for a six. Here we have a heroine living with Asperger’s who feels isolated, inexperienced, micro managed by her family but also has an overwhelming desire to experience living. Stella hires an escort in order to further herself intimately so that she will be equipped to have a ‘normal’ relationship in the future.
What we get is a hysterical journey where she learns that ‘normal’ is underrated with the unlikeliest of help along the way. I laughed, I deep breathed and I fell totally in love with these words I couldn’t read quickly enough. And don’t despair, it was insanely erotic to boot.
