Once a free spirit who refused to be tied down, Anna is a 40-something single mother trying to put her life together after a bitter divorce. She crosses paths with a 20-year-old neighbor who could not be more wrong for her - and her life suddenly has a new focus. She is drawn to his youth, his easy grace, and his freedom from the constraints that rule her existence. Though she resists temptation in every way she can, Anna is soon engaged in a reckless and obsessive affair. The consequences are life changing.

Provocative, headlong, and utterly compelling, The Boy is the story of a woman on the edge, torn between love and lust, desire and duty. Lara Santoro writes in fierce, unflinching prose about the dark side of passion, motherhood, and a woman's unthinkable rebellion.

    " Many times I found myself laughing outloud. The brutal honesty in this book is refreshing. "

    " We first step into Anna's world during her initial infatuation with a boy 20 years her junior. As the story unfolds we are allowed glimpses into her self-destructive personality and how it affects her relationships, especially with her 8 year old daughter Eva. Lara Santoro's writing is beautiful, succinct, and unrelenting. "The Boy" is the kind of book that continues to haunt you well past the final chapter. "

    " This book was so lame. I bought this book because I read it on Glo and they made it sound great but it wasnt. I didnt like how 'the boy'had complete control of the situation and she just went along with it like she had no choice in the matter.I couldnt read another sentence of her daughter wining or her being a complete pushover.
