This Beautiful Life by Helen Schulman


I picked up This Beautiful Life by Helen Schulman because a review said it will appeal to readers who thrive on discussing moral ambiguities. Indeed. The Bergamots are a thriving family of four until 15 year old Jake attends a party and meets 13 year old Daisy. After a make-out session she invites him to spend the night and 'hook up.' He thinks she is too young, among other things, and heads for home. The next morning he checks his email and finds Daisy has made him a sexually explicit video. Unsure what to think, he forwards it to a friend, who forwards it to a friend, and soon his whole family is suffering the consequences of his action.
