Bottom Feeder by Deborah LeBlanc
Nina thinks she's escaping a nightmare the night she runs away from home and her mother's latest boy-toy, who preferred seventeen-year-old girls to forty-year-old drunks. Bu the nightmare has only begun.
She hitches a ride with a trucker, who eventually dumps her in the middle of Nowhere, Louisiana when Nina refuses to repay his act of kindness with sexual favors. Penniless, half-starved, and too frightened to accept another ride, she walks for what seems like hours until she happens upon a small town . . . and the horror that lives there.
Nina soon learns the true definition of nightmare. And the only escape from this one -- is death.
