Bad Girls Burn Slow by Pam Ward
Book DescriptionIn this compelling new novel from the author of "Want Some, Get Some, " Pam Ward proves that sometimes looks are deceiving. . . With her pale skin, heart-shaped lips, and piercing gaze, ten year-old Paula is luminous. No one can believe that Margie, as bronzed-skinned as she is plain, could possibly be Paula's mother. But Margie knows better--behind Paula's innocent, girlish beauty lies the heart of a destructive soul who literally loves to play with fire, cannot control her temper, and in school, has a proven proclivity toward violence. Margie hopes that moving closer to the California waters will snuff out the mysterious, growing flame in her daughter's heart, but Bernard, their new neighbor and funeral parlor owner, immediately senses that there is something "strange" about little Paula--something that he does not want in his home or place of business. . . Bernard, a man with secrets himself, decides that his new neighbors may need a little encouragement to find another place to live. But Paula, though still a child, has keen instincts of her own. As her suspicions about Bernard unravel and lead to a suspenseful, disturbing battle of wills, the most shocking of secrets are revealed. . . Praise for Want Some, Get Some "An outstanding debut novel. . .original, fast-paced, and full of the drama that keeps the pages turning. Don't sleep." --Darren Coleman, "Essence"(R)bestselling author
