“A hard-hitting third novel that swings between incredibly painful low moments and hard-won victories.” - Publishers Weekly (starred review)
Angie is broken-by her can't-be-bothered mother, by her high-school tormenters, and by being the only one who thinks her varsity-athlete-turned-war-hero sister is still alive. Having failed to kill herself-in front of a gym full of kids-Angie's back at high school just trying to make it through each day. That is, until the arrival of KC Romance, a girl who knows too well that the package doesn't always match what's inside.
With an offbeat sensibility and mean girls to rival a horror classic, this darkly comic anti-romantic romance will appeal to anyone who likes entertaining and meaningful fiction.
Charlton-Trujillo offers a hard-hitting third novel that swings between incredibly painful low moments and hard-won victories. Publishers Weekly (starred review) The voice of a dry and direct third-person narrator works in a story laden with heavy topics, including war, death, suicide, cutting, bullying, and homosexuality.
