Teenage Ellie
has always romanticized drug addicts, those tragic artistic souls drawn to
needles and pills, ever since the death of her junkie mother ten years ago. But
when Ellie lands in an upscale rehab clinic where nothing is as it appears to
be, she'll find another-more dangerous-romance, and discover how easily drugs
and murder go hand-in-hand.

coming-of-age story, a pop and drug culture-fueled tale of a young girl seeking
darkness... and what she finds there.

"Readers of postmodern pulp will enjoy this
intense story and unapologetically cunning character." -Publishers
Weekly (starred review)

"Provides plenty of truly twisted twists and
wraps up with a pulpy punch of an ending that's satisfying-and heartbreaking...
a fine addition to a staggering body of work." -Library Journal
(starred review)

"Like most CRIMINAL stories, there's a
darkness, along with twists that cut to the core. Phillips' art utilizes a
limited color palette that makes you feel the ideas that run through each scene,
each of the narrator's thoughts and memories."
