Chapter 1

"Helen was gay,"  Julia Taylor said.

"And you're not"  Ann Grove asked.

"Well, Im not so much anything right now."

"Sexual experimentation is not obligatory at fifteen, you know.  Infact, it's not obligatory at any age.
"No, its not that; it's just ... I think Helen likes one of my teachers."

"That's different:  You can't act on that attraction until you've graduated and turned eighteen.  If, of course, Julia is also attracted to her."

"But Edward wasnt Jan's teacher, ever.  And he certainly had boy fri9ends before".

"That was politics."

"It's wrong to win a Nobel?"

"No."  There was a brief pause:  "Jan's mother is also a high-profile celebratory, at least in the Netherlands."

"She just writes poetry"

"She's the Court Poet at the Hague.  That's the equivalent of Poet Laureate in Britain and in the States.  Last year, during the fuss about public funding of the arts,  the First Lady announced she had invited a number of poets to dinner at the White House.  The Poets responded that they would come, and recite some  of the political poems they had written about the President, which was an abuse of hospitality.  The First Lady responded by trying to limit the topics the poets could  write about.  In my opinion, that was a really stupid  move.  Nothing sets a poet's back up like telling her what to write.  Jan's mother wrote two limericks One about the First Lady cancelling the dinner and the other about the poets.  Neither limerick translates into English. 

"However, there was a fuss,"  Ann continued.  The State Department got involved, the royal family got involved, Jan's mother offered to write another limerick, the ambassador from the Hague got involved. 

"In any case, Jan and Edward decided to be law abiding until Jan's eighteenth birthday."

"I didn't know that, about the poets."

Erin Crowley: The concept here is really strong, but the execution is definitely lacking. Tenses, grammar, etc are all off, with at least one or more errors per 'Page' on my phone. The writing style is almost broken- sentences move into each other awkwardly, and are filled with an excess of "filler words", lik...

genlynne2379: I read the other review of this book and I must say that I disagree with it wholeheartedly. I do not believe the author put the apostrophes in the names just to be unique, but because the characters are supposedly of a different race than humans. They are Anmah. They should have different names a...

Jason Phang: It's too short! The plot was excellently thought through, with the characters flowing up and down the storylines like the peaks and valleys of the Himalayas. Thoroughly enjoyed the book and the time spent with Asta and her journeys. (:

Sara Grover: Being that this is your first story and I assume first draft, a lot of little mistakes are common, we all have made them; little things like your instead of you're, missed capitalization, missing punctuation, etc. As for the plot, I have a lot of questions and I did leave comments on certain sect...
