Anna has always been a risk-taker and a free spirit, but now she is raising a young daughter on her own and she has to play it safe. Her twenty-something neighbor with the slow, easy smile is in no way part of Anna's plans. She resists temptation in every way she can, yet Anna is soon drawn into a reckless and obsessive affair.

Provocative, headlong, and utterly compelling, THE BOY is the story of a woman on the edge, torn between love and compulsion, desire and duty. Lara Santoro writes in 'hypnotic and swiftly paced' prose (Daniel Woodrell) about the hazards of passion and motherhood and about one woman's unthinkable rebellion.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Witty, compulsive, sensuous, and brutally honest about the price of motherhood. * Emma Donoghue, author Room *
Fierce....The Boy achieves startling power because of Ms. Santoro's refusal to soften the edges of her riveting main character, who hates and loves at hot-blooded extremes....Ms. Santoro has made her all too human. -- Sam Sacks * Wall Street Journal *
