My book talks are coming at you from a librarian, not a reviewer. You won’t find me talking about style or craft, why I think this could’ve been better or what worked or didn’t work. I only do book talks on books I liked and want other people to know about. So if it’s here I probably think it won’t injure your brain if you read it.
Tourmaline doesn’t have the normal life of a teenager. Her dad is the head of a notorious biker gang, the Wardens, that – even though she’s convinced they do nothing but good – the cops take a serious interest in. Even though she’s planning on going to college in the fall, she’s spending the summer trying to figure out how to smuggle comfy socks to her mom in prison – and she wouldn’t even be there if Tourmaline hadn’t made the phone call that got her arrested.
Virginia can’t claim normal either. She’s been working for the questionable lawyer who got her mom off since she was fifteen – her services being accepted for a cash payment her mom couldn’t make. Virginia knows how to maneuver people to get what she needs. And now her boss wants her to befriend Tourmaline Harris to find out what’s really going on with the Wardens. Because if they’re running drugs, he wants to run them out of the business and take it over himself.
Both girls have had it rough, and neither knows how to have a real friend – until they meet each other.
