A coming of age literary novel
The haves and have nots in Little Badger Lake see the boys as troubled and misguided, but more importantly, dangerous. Rory Orrick has a choice–to get help, forget about his past and move forward–or listen to his brother–and an overwhelming urge for self destruction.
Slip Away is a new novel set in the beautiful landscape of Adirondack mountains. A coming of age literary journey into darkness, madness, and self perseverance.
What would you do for love?
This is a question Rory asks himself several times because love is a knife with a jagged blade that cuts both ways.
