Description

Wonder Twins on the run--and running amok--in Vegas. Road Trip!

Paisley and Beau are boldface names again. Last time, paparazzi called them the Wonder Twins, two kids found alone but alive in the woods of exotic New Jersey. Three days after their mom's death -- and before their dad's criminal misdeeds.

Flash-forward to now: Their so-called lives? Suck out loud: Hating on their cougarized, Botoxic grandma, they're totally clueless about the location of ex-con Daddy. Till they discover a stash of old letters. That's when they decide to jack the Pontiac and hit the road. Holding up donut shops in Sin City might seem extreme, but if they can just get their pretty bad faces back on TV -- or TMZ -- they might wrap up their whole gaga saga with an Oprah-worthy reunion already!

Slick, hip, anarchic. Fresh and effortlessly readable. -- The Bookseller UK

There's an impressive filmic quality...Altogether pretty damn good. -- The Telegraph UK

About C J Skuse

C.J. SKUSE loves graphic novels, '80s sitcoms, Gummi Bears, My Chemical Romance, and malamutes. She hates omelettes, carnivals, and coughs. She has an MFA in Creative Writing from Bath Spa University in England. BCCB called her novel PRETTY BAD THINGS a fast-paced action adventure [that] provides a subtle sociolgical study of the effects of living in a hyper-mediated culture! ROCKOHOLIC is her second book.
