“Pinnacle Lust, the emotionally charged, complex and gripping debut novel… Michelle Dim-St. Pierre’s triumphant, daring debut heralds an ambitious talent and welcomes a new voice to contemporary fiction…”
– John J. Kelly, book reviewer for

“You get a powerful first-hand look at what everyday life was like in Israel when most Americans were watching Shock and Awe on the 24-hour news channel.”
 – Mike Ball, Erma Bombeck Award-Winning Author

From the author:

“Of course I wrote Pinnacle Lust to entertain, but I also sought to convey a few messages to readers. First and foremost, it is important for me to see young people being proactive in their lives, rather than waiting for something to happen to them, just like my protagonist in Pinnacle Lust. In addition, I strived to illustrate the links and gaps between religious orthodox and secular Jews – tying the two groups by their roots and beliefs and keeping them apart as they live different lives. And last but not least, I tried to bring an authentic firsthand look at a time when missiles rained down regularly and randomly upon the civilian population of Israel.”
