Description: Maidenhead traverses the desperate, wild spaces of a teenage girl’s self-consciousness. Myra, naive and curious, is on a family vacation to the southernmost tip of Florida – a mangy Key West full of Spring Breakers. Here, she suffers through the embarrassments of a family on the verge of splitting up and meets Elijah, a charismatic Tanzanian musician who seduces her at the edge of the tourist zone. Myra longs to lose her virginity to Elijah and she is shocked to discover that he lives with Gayl, a secretive and violent woman who has control over him.As Myra and her family return to an unnamed, middle-class, grey Canadian city, her mother suddenly leaves the nest. When Gayl and Elijah travel north and infiltrate Myra's life, Myra walks willingly into their world. Myra continues to experiment sexually with Elijah, while Gayl plays an integral part in the increasingly abject games. Slowly, Myra finds herself drawn to Gayl over Elijah, while she struggles with conflicting loyalty to her new friends.Maidenhead is the story of a young woman's exploration of danger. How does a girl feel scared? What is she scared of? And how does telling yourself not to be scared really work? As Myra enters worlds unfamiliar of sex, porn and class, she explores territories unknown in herself.
