Two houses, two people, one truck. Love stories are the things that girls dream about; the hopes they carry with them for a lifetime. So it is with some regret to inform you, that if you are looking for that kind of story; maybe you should put this book down. Because this is far from fantasy, far from a fairytale, and nothing like what you want it to be.
If small towns in movies existed; this would be the town that people would fear to drive by when traveling. A town that is 50% dirt and dust, and 50% corruption; where living feels like something you just do instead of dying. Being born here means that you will never leave. And it feels like the townspeople are there to make sure of it.
Jesse is a prostitute. When she isn’t working at the local diner she helps her mother with her clients that come from not only all over town, but all over the world. Having never known her father, she walks about the world with a sense of disheartened hope that maybe one day she will be able to leave the town; to pick up and never come back. And as of late, that’s the only thing that has kept her alive. Well, that and her best friend.
Connor has been abused his entire life. When he’s not being burned by cigarette’s and hit with tire iron’s; he spends his time with his only friend in the entire world, Jesse. She is the only consistent person in his life other than his father, and she has always been his rock. The one person that was supposed to stay in his life and protect him from the world has taken off without so much as a goodbye and he knows nothing about what it is like to have a normal family…or consistent meals every day of the week. Where are you supposed to go when your whole existence is nothing but a big regret?
