The town where it always rained in the night

Book Review   by:Flowerydress     Original Author: belen eguinoa
ª
This abstract was translated from La ciudad donde siempre llovía de noche
 
Laura is 15 year old when her uncle abuses her. None wants to believe her story is true, and they act as if it were another of the naïve things she does to call for atention.
Laura's world is based on her friends, and when her freedom is restricted, the only way to recover it is beginning a relationship with David, the ideal boyfriend adored by her family.
Nonetheless, the terrible experience of her teenager years has affected her too much. She doesnt want anybody to get too close. She doesnt like to be watched, doesnt want people telling her how beauty she looks. She doesnt want David's caresses, she feels terror about having sex.
Laura feels different and crippled...unless when she becomes the green-eyes-girl in the internet chats. But, whats the problem when you meet the wrong person in the wrong place and at the wrong moment?
The novel mixes different styles, impersonal present, Laura's voice through her diary, internet chats and phone calls.
A book to be enjoyed by the romance readers, that will be a precedent in its genre.
