"Fifteen-year-old Etgar Allison is spending spring break alone in an empty house, when he inadvertently learns that his girlfriend has cheated on him with another boy. Heartbroken and lonely, without parental supervision, he turns to alcohol. Unable to cope with his grief, he looks to the Internet for comfort and lands in an adult chatroom. There he meets Macy, a bored but attractive housewife; flirtatious IMs escalate into cybersex chats and soon Etgar is raiding his savings account for a romantic rendezvous in London. What could possibly go wrong? Ben Brooks's Lolito is an uncompromising look at the turbulent emotional life of teenage boys, a funny and poignant story that injects raw honesty--and even a little tenderness--into its portrait of a taboo relationship."--provided from

a dirty dream, a teenage fantasy with no consequences, a wasteland of unmotivated characters trying to go nowhere and succeedingly, mostly while drunk
