Done Dirt Cheap, by Sarah Nicole Lemon

From my Kirkus column about Done Dirt Cheap, by Sarah Nicole Lemon:

It’s a book that deals with how friendships change with age, and how we sometimes grow out of friendships as we grow into ourselves. It’s about a girl whose relationship with her father changes as she becomes a young woman—in large part because he suddenly recognizes that his peers might now view her as a sexual object.

It deals with female sexuality as power, it acknowledges and celebrates female sexual desire, but it also acknowledges the power dynamics that can lead to sexual coercion and assault. And it deals, very much, with the patriarchal culture of brotherhood—and more specifically all-male motorcycle clubs—and how ownership of women ties into that.
