Not long ago, we believed the smallest elements of the universe were protons, neutrons and electrons. Then we discovered that these tiny particles are made up of even smaller particles called quarks. There are six kinds of quarks and their names are Up, Down, Top, Bottom, Strange and Charmed. Shari Frilot's remarkable Strange and Charmed offers a fresh, sophisticated, super sexy urban sci-fi story about the love lives of an 8-year old girl Lua, a 20-year old lesbian Chakra, and a 40-year old accountant Amanda all through the point of view of two subatomic particles dancing through spacetime! The quarks Strange and Charmed fly through cosmic and microcosmic spaces which make up the universe and bodies of the three human characters as the women find and lose love over the course of one night on Earth
