Arrives in 3-7 Business Days
Street kid. On the run.Tough. Whip smart redhead.Hurt. Catches a lucky break.Survives . . .Monique Reilly couldnt stay on the streets, not after her boyfriend sold her to a pimp. She couldnt go home after her moms boyfriend did what he did while her mom heard and pretended not to hear. So she was on the run, in play. Stay out? Come in? Cant stay out. But is it safe to come in?She knew what she was running from, but she couldnt know what she was getting into. Be real careful, in the real world, when the stakes are for real. Dont trust anybody. Sometimes the girls locked in. Sometimes the worlds locked out. Sometimes, both at the same time. Dont get trapped. But that happens, of course. When it does, let it happen and tough it out . . . In contemporary Oregon, downtown Portland, an existence on the streets, a gritty reality that has to end, a life expectancy of weeks or months, not years, no matter the meth and no matter the tricks and no matter the grifting. It has to end.Its just a matter of how. A noir coming of age, a dystopian rite of passage. Metamorphosis, the death of one life and a resurrection in a new one, all in three days.Monique got lucky. Real lucky.
