STILL CANDY SHOPPING
This is a twofer about the world of drugs and prostitution, so don’t look for happily ever after here. In Swinson’s story, Faith is a dope fiend whose bad decisions have kept her in a world of pain, and Ben’s dismal home life has him looking for ways to feed himself in McCall’s tale. When hope is gone, their lives descend into free fall. Both of these stories give us a terrifying peek into a life we’d never want to visit outside of the book.
