An ultimately hopeful story of a girl who is deeply confused and self-destructive, who must confront her own sense of what it means to be a girl, and what it means to give and receive love.

When Nina Faye is 14, her mother tells her that there is no such thing as unconditional love. This warps Nina's understanding of what girls are good for, and at 17, she's willing to do anything emotionally and sexually to keep her boyfriend. He leaves her anyway, perhaps because of her passivity, and it's only through remembering a trip to Rome she made when she was 14, where she saw Christian martyr saints willing to give up their lives for their faith, that she comes to realize how wrong her mother's advice was, and that what girls are made of is more than the sum of their sexual parts and abilities.
Masterfully written realistic fiction about a confused girl who must confront her own sense of what it means to be a girl, and what it means to love and be loved.
Fairy-tale-like and magical realistic stories about what it means to be a girl are interwoven throughout the narrative.
