--San Francisco Chronicle

"Compelling...Readers of all sexes and orientations should identify with this gusty hero as she learns who she is and how to love."
--Newsday

"Delectable...written in roguishly lilting prose filled with the sights, sounds, and stenches of London street life."
--The Seattle Times

"Erotic and absorbing...Written with starling power."--
The New York Times Book Review

--The Boston Globe
