Narrator Lillian Claire portrays the toughness and tenderness of college freshman Juliet Palante, a self-described "closeted Puerto-Rican baby-dyke from the Bronx." Claire depicts Juliet's mix of fear and courage as she awkwardly comes out to her family and faces her mother's painful rejection. Nevertheless, she's off to Portland, Oregon, for an internship with Harlow Brisbane, author of RAGING FLOWER: EMPOWERING YOUR PUSSY BY EMPOWERING YOUR MIND, the book Juliet feels is responsible for igniting her sexual awareness. When naïve Juliet lands in a white hippie feminist household complete with pot and various partners, Claire captures her shock. The book examines sexual and race issues within a frame of self-discovery. Claire provides a spot-on portrayal of Juliet's sometimes heartbreaking attempts to find her way. S.W.
