So much to say about this book and so many reasons why I loved it.
If you pick up this book keep an open mind. Jeremy is not a perv and this is no regular 16 year old girl. She has lived and lived hard in her short 16 years. I loved them. Great plot, fleshed out Characters. I could actually see the movie in my head as I was reading. Belinda's letter to Jeremy is so great. Alex's friendship with Jeremy was so wonderful and G.G. is so cute! Belinda's relationship with her mother is such a tragedy on so many levels. She is evil yet you feel sorry for her. This is a book that I could read again and probably will. Holy Communion! I loved it.

I knew this would be a book that I would enjoy over and over again. I did pick up on a few things. I didn't think Jeremy was 5 years older that GG. WOW. For me I still had no problem with the age thing.
Read it! Read it! You will be in for a treat!
“Who was she?” That was the first thought that came into my mind when I saw her in the bookstore.
Who was she really?
She’s Belinda. She’s sixteen years old. She’s the object of one man’s ultimate fantasy. And she’s one of the most “uniquely sensual and provocative” heroines to emerge from the “fearless” imagination of New York Times bestselling author Anne Rice.
“Call her the It Girl of contemporary fiction. Whatever the venue, she’s never too squeamish to reach out and touch it.”-Rolling Stone
“Her voluptuous prose draws readers into an erotic landscape where the sensual delights are dark-edged…and utterly compelling.”-Village Voice”A wry and richly textured diary of ‘forbidden love.’ A compelling blend of mystery and romance.”-Kirkus Reviews
“Easily one of the most natural storytellers on the modern scene… Belinda is certainly her most controversial to date.”-San Francisco Chronicle
