As Fast as She Can
by E.F. Schraeder
Readers meet Ginger, the main character in my latest book As Fast as She Can in the middle of a big, bloody mess. A family mess. There is trouble all around her, and when she takes off it’s hard to blame her because readers will learn early on that she hasn’t had the best of luck in her short life. And that luck doesn’t seem to be getting better, even though she thought things were getting better after finally being adopted by a couple who seemed nice enough on the surface…
In Fast, Ginger, realizes those doting, too-sweet parents aren’t anything like what they seem to be on the outside. In fact, she worries her parents are quite possibly the worst thing that ever happened to her. They are not only way too picky and nosy about her personal life, who-knows-how-old, and sometimes kind of gross, they are potentially dangerous, deadly, and terrifying.
Turns out Ginger’s happy ever-after-ending has not been happy at all. While Ginger’s situation creates a lot of paperwork for a certain social worker, it also means Ginger has a lot of work to do on her own. Like anyone, Ginger has deep-seated wounds from some of those experiences, but they aren’t on center stage when readers meet up with her. Ginger is preoccupied with figuring out who she wants to be, with or without her adoptive parents’ help. Ginger doesn’t trust the people around her who promised to care for her. Once you find out what they’ve been up to, maybe there’s only one question to ask: who would?
Runaway. Rebel. Monster.
Living in a quiet house on the outskirts of town, Ginger isn’t like
the other girls.
When she wakes up and discovers the unthinkable about her adoptive parents, she runs away and goes on a rampage straight to the only friend she has. Can she control what they both become?
With a violent, growing hunger, and more questions than answers, Ginger finds herself running out of options with nowhere to turn.
