Synopsis:

Living with her heroin addict father, Jules, thirteen-year-old Baby catches the eye of the charismatic Alphonse, who possesses a string of girls who do his bidding, and is sent to reform school, but when she ultimately gains her freedom, she begins to discover that only she possesses the power to save herself. A first novel. Original. 30,000 first printing.


Review:

"Baby, like Holden Caulfield in CATCHER IN THE RYE, is totally believable....[Heather O'Neill's] achievement is to capture both the child's voice and her spirit."

Sarah Curtis, Times Literary Supplement, 02/08/2008

A gritty, heart-wrenching novel about bruised innocence on the city s feral streets--the remarkable debut of a stunning literary talentHeather O Neill dazzles with a first novel of extraordinary prescience and power, a subtly understated yet searingly effective story of a young life on the streets--and the strength, wits, and luck necessary for survival.At thirteen, Baby vacillates between childhood comforts and adult temptation: still young enough to drag her dolls around in a vinyl suitcase yet old enough to know more than she should about urban cruelties. Motherless, she lives with her father, Jules, who takes better care of his heroin habit than he does of his daughter. Baby s gift is a genius for spinning stories and for cherishing the small crumbs of happiness that fall into her lap. But her blossoming beauty has captured the attention of a charismatic and dangerous local pimp who runs an army of sad, slavishly devoted girls--a volatile situation even the normally oblivious Jules cannot ignore. And when an escape disguised as betrayal threatens to crush Baby s spirit, she will ultimately realize that the power of salvation rests in her hands alone. Bookseller Inventory # AAC9780060875077
