The style of this story is fascinating, with Saskia's Homerian daydreams influencing her experiences. She is growing up in the aftermath of a commune that had been dominated by a guru. She has a girl-crush on the new girl at school and they embark upon an intense friendship, but then the return of her father distracts her and twists events around. Her quest for the truth brings the story to many uncomfortable places. I almost gave the book up in disgust, but it was saved by the ending.
