There are six kinds of quarks and their names are Up, Down, Top, Bottom, Strange and Charmed. Shari Frilot's remarkable Strange and Charmed offers a fresh, sophisticated, super sexy urban sci-fi story about the love lives of an 8-year old girl Lua, a 20-year old lesbian Chakra, and a 40-year old accountant Amanda all through the point of view of two subatomic particles dancing through spacetime!
