Sunday Salon: Dirty Little Angels by Chris Tusa
This is an easy read, fast pace work of fiction set in pre-Katrina New Orleans focusing on the lives of one family and their interaction with others.
"Dirty Little Angles" is not a cozy, murder mystery, but a realistic look at the harsh world some face among crack houses and abandoned buildings. There is no "happy" ending, just another twist in this coming-of-age story.
The protagonist is a 16-year-old named Hailey Trosclair who narrates the story of her family and a number of friends they deal with on a daily basis.
Author Chris Tusa tells the story in such a way you feel you are walking the streets of New Orleans side by side with Hailey.
While dealing with school life and teen-age worries, Hailey attempts to keep her family together using the only means she knows.
The story contains sex, violence, betrayal, heartache, addiction, depression, love, and murder. The plot will take you on a roller coaster ride of highs and lows experienced by Hailey and her family.
The dysfunctional Trosclair family will have you shaking your head and wondering 'what else is going to happen now.'
