A MacDowell Colony fellow and a finalist for the Starcherone Prize, Grace Krilanovich was also nominated for a Pushcart Prize. During the 1990s in the Pacific Northwest, a hobo vampire gang on drugs causes horrific chaos everywhere they go—from trashing supermarket breakrooms to crashing senior center pancake breakfasts. Amidst the danger one girl, who benefits (and suffers) from drug-induced ESP, searches desperately for her foster sister.

This book is not easy to read. You have to chew through it as it chews through you, but it is more than worth the work. One of my favorite reads being terrifically read.
I couldn't get through this book. The author is trying too hard to be edgy. At times, it just feels like the author is stringing words together in hopes that it makes sense, and more often than not, it doesn't. I get that it's supposed to be viewed from the perspective of a drug addict, so maybe I'm unable to process that way of thinking, but it just seemed jumbled, like the author was trying to be poetic, but didn't really know how to be. I did not enjoy this book.
