About the book: It’s undeniable that it’s a beautifully written novel, however it’s very intense. The plot is quite disturbing yet absorbing, describing the lives of three young girls, who live in separation from the rest of the world in order to avoid diseases, who are supposedly spread by men. It’s not the easiest read, however, definitely a page-turner and a must on everyone’s reading list!
