Overview

A dark coming-of-age story set in post-apocalyptic America.

Life in economically and socially collapsed America has taught 14-year-old Sunni Brown more than a few tough lessons 1) Life sucks, 2) People suck too, and 3) You can't trust your own flesh and blood relatives even if your ability to keep breathing, eating and living depends on them.

Sunni's move to New Hope City, a town known more for its former glory than its current corruption, is supposed to give her a fresh start. But like so many things in Sunni's life, her fresh start is soiled by those seeking to exploit her. Corrupt cops. Ruthless gangsters. Ambitious youth with dreams of ill-gotten fortunes. They all seek to lift themselves at Sunni's expense. It's only Sunni's street smarts and a strong distrust of people that keeps her one step ahead. But not without a cost. Something is brewing inside her -- a bit of hate, a touch of rage and a large dose of righteous indignation. For Sunni, life in New Hope City is filled with injustice that she's powerless to fight. But when she crosses paths with a disillusioned cop, will her growing outrage and his desire to change a rotten city transform her from helpless victim to vigilante outlaw?

This is the full-length novel follow-up to "The Shelter."

Meet the Author

When I began writing "New Hope City" I made the decision to not sugarcoat some of the darker sides of childhood. I wanted to explore how poverty and societal collapse can drastically alter a child's life in ways most of us never imagine. I enjoy writing books about how societal collapse can change individuals and families. Speculative fiction, science fiction and dystopian fiction have always served as excellent tools for this type of exploration. However, I do take a different approach. Instead of keeping a distance, my stories take a very intimate look at the relationships between individuals living in these corrupt societies. How does the individual and family respond to economic collapse, oppression and other nastiness created by unbelievably rotten cultures? Come with me to find out...

LibraryThing Book Review Sunni Brown is one of many prostitutes in New Hope City that doesn't have a chance of getting free. Sunni's mother abandons her leaving Sunni with no place to live and in trouble with the law. Everyone praises The Captain for protecting everyone but there is a darker side to The Captain. Tony Gavilan is police officer whose death was unexpected and tragic. Tony gives Sunni a place to live and tries to figure out who is killing prostitutes. Jin appears to like Sunni but Sunni is unsure of who he means to her. Will Sunni get free? Can Tony stop The Captain? Whose killing the prostitutes? Your answers await you in New Hope City.
