Gabi, A Girl in Pieces -Cinco Puntos Press, 2014

If only her father weren’t addicted to meth. If only she wasn’t such a bad girl (according to her mother). If only she didn’t like beef jerky  so much. It’s her senior year of high school and Gabi needs to figure things out before she goes off to college. That’s IF she’s accepted to any schools at all.
