Summary, etc.:
"An abandoned girl, a savaged heart, a fatal hit and run--the thirteen stories in this powerful collection explore the scattered wreckage of life's survivors. The characters in Girls in Trouble struggle to overcome loss and find their way through a world of desire and menace, redemption and error. Normalcy, a state always just beyond reach, glitters and beckons, impelling them forward."--Page [2] of jacket.
