Based loosely on the life of a real person, this story is about a girl who grew up with three strikes against her. She was unwanted, overweight, and plain. The only person who really cared about her was her grandmother, who died when she was a teenager. Like the saying goes, she sought love in all the wrong places. The one constant in her life was her quest for a god, who may or may not be real. And if he was real, did he care about her?
Miss Candy Nash takes our heroine from a fourth-grade girl struggling to keep her name to a young woman shaking behind a locked bathroom door while her would-be attacker threatens to drag her by her hair to his bed.
Does God care? Will he deliver her from the nightmare she finds herself in?
