Marie By /

Teenager Marie Darlange leaves Mississippi for Chicago, to live with her wealthy Aunt and Uncle and their four kids, after the almost simultaneous deaths of her parents from natural causes. Her stunning beauty, sharp intellect and biting wit immedately makes her stand out among her classmates… and she soon discovers that her body makes men wild, giving her a power she can use to get what she want besides just satisfying her aching, physical needs. The only question is… what does she want?

When she graduates high school, her Uncle reveals that her parents had life insurance policies, payouts that he successfully invested on her behalf. Now she has the freedom and the money to explore the world and her passions… to answer that burning question. So she hits the road to nowhere and everywhere in search of herself.
