On May 15, 1975, 15-year-old Ginny Lemon is abducted from a convenience store in Fort Lauderdale by a member of one of the most notorious and brutal motorcycle gangs in South Florida. From that moment on, her life is forever changed. She gets a new name, a new identity, and a new life in the midst of the gang's base on the edge of the Florida Everglades - a frightening, rough, and violent world much like the swamps themselves, where everyone has an alias and loyalty is tantamount to survival.

I loved this book so much that this is my second time listening. I've read all three in the series. I like how Beth Flynn weaves the characters background throughout the book. It helps to get a deeper understanding of each character.
