Traduit par Laura Derajinski

The fourteen-year-old Turlte Galveston travels the land of California’s north coast with a rifle and a gun for sole companions. She grew up alone in a reclusive and unsafe family environment under the ruling of an abusive and charismatic father. She has no social life other than at school. She shelters from the outside world until she meets Jacob, a witty high-school student who is both intrigued and fascinated by her. Their budding friendship will prompt Turtle to break free from her father and to risk her freedom and her survival in an adventure from which there will be no return. My Absolute Darling narrates the struggle of a young girl to come into her own and save her soul.
