About this title


Mia is the only family Dayzee has. After several tumultuous years that left the sisters traumatized, Dayzee is placed in foster care. Mia, old enough to be on her own, has her own apartment. But Mia can’t simply take Dayzee in, not after their shared history of abuse has left both girls scarred and shaken.

Dayzee knows she’s an outsider; to her, being in foster care is proof that mainstream society doesn’t want her. She reinvents herself as a punk and finds friends like her, people living on the margins of 1980s Dallas. After several failed placements, Dayzee runs away from the foster care system and lives the life of a homeless teen. But when she is attacked by skinheads, Dayzee knows she needs her family.

So Dayzee moves in with Mia, who isn’t sure how to handle her rebellious younger sister. Dayzee tries to make the transition easier; she gets a job at a coffee shop and avoids selling drugs like her friends do. But soon enough, Dayzee’s loyalty is split between her two families: her sister and her group of outcasts. Dayzee will realize she can’t have both—but not before her life takes an even darker turn.
