Overview
Quinn Cutler is sixteen and the daughter of a high-profile Brooklyn politician. She's also pregnant, a crisis made infinitely more shocking by the fact that she has no memory of ever having sex. Before Quinn can solve this deeply troubling mystery, her story becomes public. Rumors spread, jeopardizing her reputation, her relationship with a boyfriend she adores, and her father's campaign for Congress. Religious fanatics gather at the Cutlers' home, believing Quinn is a virgin, pregnant with the next messiah. Quinn's desperate search for answers uncovers lies and family secrets--strange, possibly supernatural ones. Might she, in fact, be a virgin?

Quinn Cutler, the 16-year-old daughter of a writer running for U.S. Congress, is shocked to learn that shes pregnant: shes never had sex, at least not as far as she can remember. As word gets out that shes both pregnant and claiming to be a virgin, devout believers pilgrimage to the familys Brooklyn home, hoping to see Quinn and even be healed. In a suspenseful and thought-provoking novel, Baer (Frost) tackles the illusiveness of memory (especially in regard to trauma), media firestorms, fear of the unknown, and the complexities of faith, without ever turning didactic or allowing Quinns story to fall into melodrama. Amid the growing chaos of her life, Quinn becomes a capable and courageous sleuth in the search for answers; writing in third person, Baer makes readers intimately aware of Quinns confusion and conflicted feelings about her pregnancy, as well as the reactions of people close to (and not so close to) her that escalate matters dangerously. Its a delicate, complicated, and engrossing exploration of the collision between real life and the inexplicable. Ages 13up. Agent: Sara Crowe, Pippin Properties. (Apr.)
