Editors Note When her professor father is gunned down in a botched robbery in the mall parking lot after she evades mall security following a shoplifting incident, fifteen-year-old Lucia Moberg finds herself caught in a web of violence and turmoil that also involves her grieving mother, a pregnant outlaw desperate for a normal life, and a determined female cop. A first novel. Reprint. 15,000 first printing.
Editors Note 1 Punky Lucia Moberg turns sixteen in a week. She steals CDs from stores, argues with Mom, pines for the rebel boy next door. But adolescence ends fast in a mall parking lot when Luc’s professor father is shot dead in an apparent botched stickup. The killer flees, and so ignites an inferno that will engulf all the women it touches: a mother whose domestic life is shrouded in darkness, a pregnant outlaw desperate for a secure life, a dogged family cop atoning for her own family’s collapse, and Lucia herself, caught in the peril and violence that surrounds her.
