A Small Free Kiss in the Dark

Publisher: Templar Publishing

When the bombs begin to fall, runaway Skip camps out in the State Library with homeless old Billy and little Max, waiting for the mother who never comes.

Imminent danger forces them to move to an abandoned amuseument park, where they are joined by ballerina Tia and her baby Sixpence. Tia is fifteen with eyes like pansies. When the soldiers arrive, Tia dances to keep them sweet. Skip plans a daring escape, but will Tia join them?

An exciting, emotional read about Skip, deserted by his own family, but discovering a new one in the most unexpected of places. Loyalty, love, courage, generosity, cruelty and despair all have their place in this gripping read of an apocalyptic time.
