9780006479659: Thirteenth Child

Working at her parents' roadside gas station and stuggling to cope with her alcoholic father and defeated mother, Kate prefers to block out her real life and live, instead, in the stories created by her own imagination. When Mike, a new boy in town, threatens to rob the snack bar, Kate recognizes his need for attention and decides to befriend him instead of turning him in. But when she hears of a series of robberies in town and then about the murder of a popular girl at school, Kate is torn: will the crimes be solved if she reveals what she knows about Mike's past?

From the Author:

I did the research for this book by driving around southern Ontario, staying at small motels, drinking endless cups of coffee in service station snack bars, and eavesdropping. A lot of the conversation in the book is taken word for word from what I heard. The story, however, comes out of my imagination--almost as fertile as Kate's!

From the Back Cover:

Both a suspenseful mystery and a sensitive portrayal of a young writer's coming-of-age, THIRTEENTH CHILD will grip readers from its first page to its startling conclusion.
