What an amazingly strange book. Perhaps one of the most intriguing and weird "heroines" of any book I've ever read. I bought this book because it was a daily deal on Audible. It caught my attention, though I can't say for sure why. The main character has not left her apartment or come in direct contact with another human in several years. Explaining why would spoil the story. But rather than shutting herself off from relationships, she has found unique ways to make connections and form "friendships" in her narrow little world. She makes her living, and a very good living, operating as a webcam sex worker, who also happens to be a virgin. She presents the details of her work in such a clinical way most of the time that she might as well be explaining her job as a nurse or a CPA.
The story evolves around the choice she makes to expose herself to the world, a step she thinks is extremely dangerous to others, in order to save another person and eventually, to have a personal relationship. By the end of the book you discover just how resourceful, brave and heroic she truly is.
The writing is tight, it moves quickly and I found myself unwilling to put it down. And while she is so clinical and matter of fact about her profession, there are a couple of topics that might make some people uncomfortable, but they are integral to the story and are what makes her the person she is and drives her to take what she considers a huge risk. The narration was excellent.
One of the best books I have read this year.

If you could sum up The Girl in 6E in three words, what would they be?
Crazy, sexy, cool.
Who was your favorite character and why?
The Girl in 6E, of course. She's crazy/sexy/smart/beautiful and can handle a knife. Why else wouldn't I love her?
Have you listened to any of Jorjeana Marie’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Her voice was perfectly fitting and wonderful to listen to throughout.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Any additional comments?
Great job! Definitely looking for more by A.R. Torre.
