SUMMARY

Abzurdah tells the story of Cielo, an upper-middle class teenager who meets a man nine years older than her through the Internet, with whom she begins a relationship and falls madly in love. Involved in a superficial environment, with no friends and in an adult world which poorly understands the teenage universe, the relationship becomes an obsession for Cielo, a loquacious narrator, who is incisive and vertiginous, and who leads us throughan unrequited love story where the option of giving up eating becomes the illusion of a perfect life.
