Once upon a time there lived a certain family of the name of Skratdj. (It has a Russian or Polish look, and yet they most certainly lived in England.) They were remarkable for the following peculiarity. They seldom seriously quarrelled, but they never agreed about anything. It is hard to say whether it were more painful for their friends to hear…
With the freedom of her new life as a college student, Alex seizes the chance to learn who she really is—and who she is, the world is about to learn, is someone who dares to go bare. As she embraces adulthood, Alex comes into her own, reveling in her life as an enthusiastic exhibitionist in search of the ultimate thrill. Along the way, she earns her degree in literature while making a name for herself in the adult entertainment world. The budding porn star enjoys quite the following as she works her way through college creatively. Her new life is a long way from the farm.
But her wild, compulsive behavior comes with a price. Her friends struggle to tolerate and understand her need to display herself. Her family, with the exception of two elderly aunts, has difficulty accepting her choices—even if her path takes her to the red carpet as an Academy Award nominee.
For a sweet little girl who grew up on a farm, her reality seems more like a dream. Is she ready to pay the price for her new life?
