"With toiletries, hairbands, and notebooks in her bag, nineteen-year-old Rafaela leaves her parents' home and travels to the fornerly majestic Olympic Hotel, perched in the mountains above the small village of Strega. As seasonal workers, she and eight other girls toil constantly to prepare the hotel for guests, but none arrive. Instead, they contort themselves daily to the expectations of their strict, matronly bosses and, in their spare moments, find solace together. When guests finally arrive for a wild and raucous party, one of the girls to disappears without a trace. What follows are deeper revelations about the myths we teach young women, what we raise them to expect from the world, and whether a gentler, more beautiful life is possible."--Dust flap.
