Book Description

Tightly plotted and fast paced, Girl Crazy is a cinematic ride through one man’s obsession with a younger woman. Justin, a dissatisfied community college teacher, meets Jenna and is attracted at once to her mixture of toughness, vulnerability and ripe sexuality. Jenna is unlike anyone Justin has ever known -- through her he discovers a world of drugs and sex, casual violence and intimidation that at first frightens and then thrills him.

Justin falls deeper into Jenna’s thrall, particularly as her erratic behaviour keeps him guessing. When Jenna ends the relationship abruptly, Justin finds he isn’t willing to let go of this new life, or of Jenna, without a fight.

Critical Praise for Girl Crazy

"Smith excels at presenting the sexual fixations of the male psyche, slicing them apart and exposing the emotional impotence beneath. ...Some of the novel’s criminal elements lend Girl Crazy the air of a thriller ... [b]ut Smith is more concerned with the psychological ramifications of hormonal obsession, and his exacting control ... results in a story of scathing insight."
