Maxim Jakubowski Highly Recommended.

Elliptical and powerful, this savage novel follows the blighted life of Nikki, a wild teenager in North Carolina on the run from a children's home seeking refuge with her drug dealer of a birth father. A dark, poetic and unapologetic tale of bleak sins and terrible, amoral excesses in the lineage of FIGHT CLUB or Alissa's Nutting equally shocking TAMPA, Faw Morris' debut is brutal and insidious, a portrait of a teenager in hell like few have attempted before. It will amaze, repulse and delight by the sheer power of its empathy with the downtrodden and the lost of American society. Handle with care!

Young God Synopsis

Nikki has been thirteen forever. Nikki drives a stolen truck up the hill to her father's trailer with a backpack full of pills, determined to make her way into his life: drug deals, pimp wars, chicken shit, ecstasy. But soon Nikki begins to learn what is required of her to survive - - to prevail - - in this world. This unforgettable book shatters old myths of power and abuse, of male violence and female victimhood.
