Precocious and shocking when first published in 1956, Chocolates for Breakfast is a candid coming-of-age story of a young girl's sudden awakening to love and desire written by 18-year-old Pamela Moore.

Disaffected, sexually precocious 15-year-old Courtney Farrell splits her time between her parents' homes in New York and Los Angeles. When a crush on a female teacher in boarding school ends badly, Courtney sets out to know everything fast--from tasting dry martinis to engaging in a passionate love affair with an older man.

Considered an American response to French sensation Bonjour Tristesse, Chocolates for Breakfast is also a tale of Courtney's close and ultimately tragic friendship with her roommate, Janet Parker, and a moving account of how teenagers approach love and sex for the first time.
