my preface to my novel. Kids with Cigarettes
Lily’s had a hard year. Though she doesn’t complain, she knows she’s resentful towards everyone, until she meets Johnny… an angel who takes her back to the simple days of 1956. Where greasers like himself didn’t have it so easy, but played the cards they were dealt with grace. With an upcoming, high stakes rumble with their rival gang luring by Lily grows indefinitely close to the shy yet courageous Joey. But when one of their own jeopardizes everyone, will the same things matter anymore or is she just completely out of touch with her own bitter reality?
