The Accidental Road
Coming September, 2019
Sixteen-year-old Katherine has two wishes in this world—to have enough money so she and her mother, Ellie, can escape her sadistic stepfather, Roy Cranston, and to eventually have a real home of her own. Katherine hides herself in novels and movies, and tries to be as inconspicuous as possible. But how can she fade into the background when she has a beautiful social butterfly of a mother who just happens to resemble Marilyn Monroe? It’s embarrassing, and the unwanted attention her mother garners could be the downfall of their plan to take Route 66 to the freedom of a new life—without Roy.
