A Penny on the Tracks (Paperback)
Special Order - Subject to availability
Lyssa resents her single mother for not being home when she needs her. Her best friend, Abbey, would prefer her mother to be gone for most of the day. This provides the backdrop of their friendship and the strong bond between them. It also is the catalyst for personal discovery, sexual identity, and tragedy. As young girls, they discover a hideout in a remote area near the train tracks, and spend much of their summer days there. As they get older, the Hideout provides them a safe haven from the pressures and angst of their teenage years.
