Helen Ginger's Angel Sometimes

I just downloaded a free copy of Helen Ginger's Angel Sometimes for my Kindle. I liked the story description of this novel, so I'm looking forward to an excellent read. Helen will be my guest author on Monday, July 9th.

Here's the blurb for Angel Sometimes:

"Angel Sometimes has a plan: Go home to Oklahoma and ask her mother why she loved her one day, then threw her out like garbage the next. Since her mother was never going to come looking for her, she'd go to her mother.

After three years on the streets of South Padre Island, she put out her thumb and hitched a ride. She arrives in Austin, Texas, at 2:23 on a Wednesday afternoon.

She was 16 and had been on her own since she turned 12 and her aunt had driven her 800 miles from home, then gave her $50 and left. Her aunt hadn't expected her to survive. She almost didn't.

She hitchhikes to Austin and gets a job swimming as a mermaid in a bar in the music district. At twenty-two, she has friends, a place to live, and a future. When a homeless girl is beaten and a waitress killed, Angel realizes she will never be whole until she confronts her parents.

It's time to quit planning and go home. To do that, she needs three things: her high school diploma, a car and a gun. She has a car. She's finished her final test for her GED. The only thing she needs is the gun and she knows where to get one."

Helen, thanks for doing the free book event for Kindle.

I got a copy on my pc and now I have to force myself to go to bed as I'm racing through it. A very interesting read - I look forward to your interview with Helen - she seems a super person!
