Publisher's Summary

Adults have forgotten the feel of a teenager's love. For you a teenager will walk through glass doors, stay awake three days in a row, be an angel standing under your window in the rain. So what that we don't know how to order from the butcher or apply foundation or insert a diaphragm? Show us.

So advises Paige Bergman, a high school student who falls in love with housewife Fiona Gallagher in Jane Summer's lyrical debut novel, The Silk Road. Part dark comedy, part suburban epic, the audiobook, set in the 1970s, hitches along with Paige as she explores her obsessions for fast cars, all things morose, and the search for one astonishing true love.

Engaging thoughts about LGBT youth

Fascinating, intense look at teenage love in the middle class of 1970. Interwoven with the issues of gay and lesbian self acceptance of that decade. Exploring who one is in the code of French. I agree a sequel would be fascinating.

My own era told with such sly beauty

Capturing the internal landscape of the yearnings and longings of first love, of teenage love before ever having the language was flawless.
Abby Craden was delicious as always.
And I did at least smile at every Hell pun.
