Ruby, Between the Cracks

Ruby

If you asked Ruby, she’d tell you she’s happy with her life.  She’s tough and independent and doesn’t depend on anyone else.  The road that has led her here has not been easy, and she’s blocked a lot of it from her memory.  But things aren’t as rosy as she would have everyone believe, and the road ahead of her is filled not only with gangs, drugs, and depression, but other challenges that Ruby hasn’t even imagined.

150,000 words, YA fiction

Status: Wrote this one a few years ago.  It is in pretty good shape.  Needs a good read through to make sure it is ready to go to editing/publishing.
