The apprehension was constant. Dessa is constantly trying to call her babysitter, cell phone service is spotty at best. It's a 20 mile walk through severely damaged LA, and the people she encounters are more dangerous than the aftershocks and broken streets. Men who are too stupid to understand why a woman might cross to the other side of the street to avoid them.
Beegie has been well acquainted with the worst of humanity for awhile. She's just another foster kid that no one seems to care much about. She and Dessa form an uneasy alliance to get to safety. While they're together, there are some flashbacks of their before lives, none of it very pretty (especially Beegie).
It's not an easy story to read, the sense of impending doom was constant. But sometimes those stories are the ones we remember most.
This book is captivating, spare and robust, filling and imminently satisfying.
Well done, Bridget Foley. I have never heard of you before, but feel sure you will become a well known author. Get an agent. You have a bright future.
