I love that we all read this at scandalously young ages! It was the first time I ever encountered anything about sex in fiction, I was nine and I had a lot to say at sleepover parties for a while.
@Limaceous Totally agree that Meggie was tiresome. Justine was way more interesting with her independence and badassery. Didn't she sleep with a married guy so she'd have more life experience and be a better actress? So practical. I totally dug that dedication to her ambitions.
