And she talks about it on NPR.  What a show off.

The book in question, Touch, is a YA novel about a fourteen-year-old girl who has a bad run in with three of her former male friends in the back of a school bus and the complications that arise from the incident as people try to get to the bottom of it.  Prose says, “The book is about — as much as it is about anything — the shock of finding yourself suddenly a different person, even though you think of yourself as the same person, and how startling it is to realize you’re living in a different body than you had six months before.”
