Summary

Twenty-one-year-old Rebecca is struggling. She's been kicked off the gymnastics team, loses her scholarship and has to move back home with her parents. Desperate to eke out a living that will free her from the confines of a life with an alcoholic mother, Becca takes a job as an exotic dancer. Ashamed of what people will call her, she keeps the job a secret from everyone except her best friend, Ally. Forced to live a double life, the pressure becomes too much, and Becca spirals further into a fog of alcohol and drug abuse. While dancing empowers her as she learns to embrace her sexuality, her fragile world is pulled apart when a stranger calls her a whore. She's sick of the pussy grabbing and  annoyed with men telling her to smile more.  
Slowly, Becca starts to realize misogyny has followed her throughout her entire life—it’s not just part of her job. Now, she's just tired of being a woman. As Becca searches for her voice in a world that would prefer she stay silent, what finally pulls her through is something she’d never thought to rely on before.

    “At once a scholar’s homage to The Iliad and startlingly original work of art by an incredibly talented new novelist….A book I could not put down.”—Ann Patchett 
    “Mary Renault lives again!” declares Emma Donoghue, author of Room, referring to The Song of Achilles, Madeline Miller’s thrilling, profoundly moving, and utterly unique retelling of the legend of Achilles and the Trojan War. A tale of gods, kings, immortal fame, and the human heart, The Song of Achilles is a dazzling literary feat that brilliantly reimagines Homer’s enduring masterwork, The Iliad. An action-packed adventure, an epic love story, a marvelously conceived and executed page-turner, Miller’s monumental debut novel has already earned resounding acclaim from some of contemporary fiction’s brightest lights—and fans of Mary Renault, Bernard Cornwell, Steven Pressfield, and Colleen McCullough’s Masters of Rome series will delight in this unforgettable journey back to ancient Greece in the Age of Heroes.

It soon becomes clear that a lot of people are scouring the station for this fugitive, a scientist with dangerous knowledge. 
    The best place to hide in the station is amongst the many cultures and subcultures of the expat Indonesian B-sector. Looking for him brings Melati into direct conflict with her people. She does not want to be seen as one of the enemy, but if the scientist's knowledge falls in the wrong hands, war will come to the station.
