Courtney Farrell is a disaffected, sexually precocious fifteen-year-old. She splits her time between Manhattan, where her father works in publishing, and Los Angeles, where her mother is a still-beautiful Hollywood actress. After a boarding-school crush on a female teacher ends badly, Courtney sets out to learn everything fast. Her first drink is a very dry martini, and her first kiss the beginning of a full-blown love affair with an older man.
A riveting coming-of-age story, Chocolates for Breakfast became an international sensation upon its initial publication in 1956, and it still stands out as a shocking and moving account of the way teenagers collide, often disastrously, against love and sex for the first time.

a tour de force
looking forward to its coming out again in French, but in the meantime here you have the original US edition. a 16 year old girl coming of age in the 1950s, written by a 17 year old girl and published when she was 18, went on to become an international best seller. Catcher in the Rye meets Dud Avacado meets Bell Jar meets… forget all that, just read the book!
