the confines of someone else's fame With the tension reaching a breaking point Nina finds that the gift she gave to her mother is rapidly becoming a sacrifice and could very well serve to be the cause of he I DNF d this book at page 205 of 304 or the end of chapter 8 Normally if I get this far this uickly it s taken me less than 20 hours I will push through to the end but I can t with this one I think there are some topics so taboo that only the most experienced talented novelists are able to write about them well and organically Read Hassinger at this point in her career was not one of these novelists Hang on til or skip to the end for a book recommendation that will give you a world like Nina Adolescence but much betterHassinger is unable to organically write in Nina a 15 year old willingly visiting with a man of 36 whom she knows only as the father of her younger DEAD brother who was conceived in adultery unbeknownst to Nina s father She is unable to organically write in this 15 year old allowing herself to be kissed by this man then knowing she doesn t like it willingly takes off her clothes at his house and is then raped statutorily but even then it s muddy and seems like straight up rape than anything on a completely separate occasion Had this been an organically written situation Nina would have been disgusted with him just as she had been before just as she had been with her mother for cheating on her father with this pedophile Hassinger makes a point to note all of Leo s flaws through Nina s eyes and to explain the burning anger she feels toward her mother and the sadness and love she feels for her father Nina feels guilty that her younger brother died on her watch and furious that the boy had been abandoned by his biological father Leo Which all make senseBut what doesn t make sense is her sexuality which should be budding at 15 but is instead bursting out of nowhere Nina goes from not being able to imagine a boy speaking to her let alone touching her to having sex with the man who ran away from his responsibilities his child by her own mother The Nina I expected would have recoiled not gone back for There isn t even a sexual progression the first second third base thing if you will Leo kisses her once and then BOOM sex the next time they meet up The mild homosexuality between Nina and her friend Raissa is acceptable Normal even Organic But I was once 15 and could never have done what Nina did with Leo I don t know if anyone but this fictional girl could haveI became so disinterested with and unattached to Nina and the rest of her story that I didn t care what happened to her or her mother or Leo or even her father who is the only truly likable character in this book That is why I DNF d it I realized that there was no possible ending I could have imagined that would have made this book worth reading from cover to coverTo reiterate in closing there are some things that you just aren t able to make realistic within a novel Some themes are just too taboo to write well and the only way to make them work is if you re a damn good experienced writer As this was Hassinger s debut novel it is clear she wasn t ready to take on such heavy topics at the time If you want a good book that is similar in content but written meticulously read Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov It certainly feels like this novel is a rip off of Lolita But Nina is hardly likable with a watered down personality in comparison to fiery Lolita Don t waste your time with this book you wouldn t buy generic brand sandwich cookies if Oreos were sitting right
