These short stories are all about young women with flaws, who want their realities to be different from what they are. The stories are disquieting, with sexual overtones. An interesting collection. ( )

There are lots of secretions in The First Hurt: clogged pores, open sores, rashes. There are kids with greasy hair and broken bones and grown-ups who keep picking at things that should be left alone. This is the ugly and wonderful landscape of adolescence, as described by girls in its throes or by adults watching them closely.
