Every Exquisite Thing

by Matthew Quick

Nanette O’Hare is an unassuming teen who has been playing the role of dutiful daughter and conscientious student-athlete. When a beloved teacher gives her his dog-eared copy of The Bubblegum Reaper–the mysterious, out-of-print cult-classic–the rebel within Nanette awakens.

But she learns there is a high price to pay, as she befriends the reclusive local author, experiments with a young Bukowski-quoting poet, and attempts to insert her true self into the world with wild abandon.
