The Bad Girl by L. Donsky-Levine
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This has been a review I needed to sit on for a while.
This is full on raw emotions, it could happen to anyone.
This is the 1970's and Riley's way of making a living is in the sex trade.
She has some experiences that you could only gulp at. She has to work in the most oldest profession known to man to keep her head above water.
Then she gets sick. The money she relied on is now no longer and she finds herself homeless.
This authors writing shares with the reader the darkest pits of human life. When times are so hard you can't find your way out, when life like this seems 'normal'.
I loved how at the beginning, it started out with Riley's cat doing all the talking. You wonder for a moment where you are.
Animals pick up on moods and sensitive to they're surroundings, the cat was what kept Riley from total isolation.
This is a journey. Its a unique start to a story and a brilliant one.
