Jane Robinson was the fruit of a permissive subculture; she was also the victim of an indifferent society. Guardianship, in the care of Family Services does not provide the utilitarian atmosphere intended. Instead, it leaves her bitter and distrustful of authority.
The men Jane chose to love have a common denominator; they resent authority and ignore the rules of society. One relationship ends tragically while another introduces a violent stalker into her life, which motivates an identity change.
While pursuing her dream of finding her birth mother and reuniting with her “adopted”
sister, Jane’s life takes on a dramatic twist when a chance meeting with Terry Kelley initiates her affiliation with organized crime.
This was an exceptional coming of age story. I have read the authors other book and couldn't wait to read this one. The book starts out a little slowly at first but the pace picks up quickly and gives the reader quite a ride. There are a lot of plot twists that I didn't see coming. The reader is kept guessing what will happen next. My attention was held throughout the book and I was up reading into the late hours to find out what happened next. There was no down time in this story at all. The characters and plot were very well developed. I really love the authors writing style and I can't wait to read more from him. A 5/5!
