THE GLAMOROUS LIFE 2: ALL THAT GLITTERS ISN’T GOLD
Genre: Mainstream, Multicultural
Turner brings the drama! Calliope and her brother are caught up in the sex and drug trade just to survive. The grown-ups in their lives are treacherous; they have to deal with neglect, betrayal, revenge and just plain hateration. Readers won’t be able to put the book down. Warning: It’s a cliffhanger!
Fifteen-year-old Calliope and her seven-year-old brother, Compton, are abandoned by their mom after her boyfriend is killed in a drug bust at their house. Their great-grandma gives the kids a place to live, but they are on their own for food and clothing. Calliope shoplifts, scams and strips to support herself and her little brother, while Compton gets into dealing drugs. The money is long, but danger abounds. (ST. MARTIN’S GRIFFIN, Nov., 288 pp., $15.99)
