What would you do?
As far as I'm concerned, there's no excuse not to be decent...Especially when you're responsible for a kid.
It just figures that fifteen-year old Victoria's dad fails once again to be at the train station like he's promised.  Fuming, Victoria watches as a teen mom stashes her bruised little boy in the train's bathroom.  When the mom gets off the train alone, Victoria decides she has had it with all the poor excuses who call them selves parents.  Making a split-second decision, Victoria boards the next train out of town-taking the little boy with her.
No, really, what would you do?Victoria's staying on the run until everyone responsible starts keeping their promises. This kid's not falling through the cracks. Not on her watch.

What other books will be featured?
"Compound" by S.A. Bodeen - April 11th-15th
