Note: 
Ellie Gold is a teenager suffering more than the average degree of angst. As an Orthodox Jew, she is well schooled in the strict prohibitions prescribed therein. Although she sincerely performs all the religious rituals and duties, Ellie is also painfully aware of her sexual attraction to a certain young woman, something she knows in an “abomination.” As their relationship develops, Ellie struggles with the question of how one reconciles lesbianism with Orthodox Judaism. Written with compassion, humanity, sensuality, there is some explicit sexuality in the story.
