Yearning for more than pig slop and hand-me-downs, August Bailey runs away from her farm home — and from her family. In the big city, she discovers that reality and fantasy don’t mix. When her money runs out, a seventeen-year-old street kid comes to her rescue. Reese has electric eyes, a gentleman’s heart—and a heroin addiction. For him, each day is a struggle to make the right choice. They fall for each other, and August wants to save him from his horrid existence. But the truth behind his pain might be more than she can bear. Could their love ruin her life?Über den Autor:
Bean counter by day, Julie Frayn spends her off hours penning award-winning novels and short stories that pack a punch. And a few stabs. When not working or writing, Julie spend as much time as possible with her babies. Well, they're grown adults now, but they still think she's cool. Right kids? Right? Hello?
In grade school, Julie was a math whiz, loved to write stories and poems in English class, and had an artistic flair for pencil drawings and pen and ink pointillism. When it came time to choose a career, she was torn between three loves. Her artistic brain ached to create. But her practical side, and the need to eat, won out. Though she's devoted her career to numbers, she revels in the written word.
