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

"Ana es una linda, aunque algo pasada de peso, jovencita de ascendencia mexicana que vive con su familia en el este de los Ángeles California. Una excelente estudiante recién graduada con honores de una preparatoria de Bevery Hills, y a quien le emociona la idea de continuar con sus estudios becada en una buena universidad, tal como su maestro le ha sugerido. Sin embargo, su madre preferiría que trabajara en el taller de costura de su hermana, sometida a los intereses de los almacenes a los que les maquila, y es asi como Ana deberá elegir entre los deseos de su tradicionalista madre o los retos y satisfacciones de una vida independiente."--Contenedor
