Maidenhead by Tamara Faith Berger

I didn't expect to read a book about an elicit internet child-porn ring, but it happened. And now I can never erase the words from my mind, not to mention the imagery. If I had known that, I would have never have read the book. But here's my 2 cents anyway...

As with most romance/erotic these days, the premise is a little sketchy. The way Myra (main underage chick) meets and re-meets (is that a word) the sex offenders is inane. Myra's rebellion is legit, and if I (begrudgingly) accept a world where something like this would happen, then I can say her choices make sense. She is a victim of a suburban family's demise. The added touch of the omniscient/omnipresent voices of her friend and her perpetrator overlooking Myra's tale in hindsight lends a modicum of depth, but is not followed through in a way that makes the story complete.

At least this heroine has a good reason for being turned out, she's a child.
