She & rsquo;s didn & rsquo;t mind the pain, but hated the look in his eye and his lingering hand. By the time she & rsquo;s fifteen, this young spitfire can & rsquo;t take any more of his unwanted groping. With seventy-four bucks in her pocket, she packs her things and buys the bus ticket that will change her life. She meets Rick at the bus stop & mdash;a handsome young thug who & rsquo;s a few days removed from his last bath. He & rsquo;s charming and sympathetic, so she buys him a ticket and, on the ride to Baltimore, tells him that she & rsquo;s going to find her real father. But wouldn & rsquo;t it be better, Rick suggests, to greet Daddy in style? Of course, a mink coat would cost a little money, but Rick knows just where to get it. His plan is daring, foolish, and highly dangerous. What teenage runaway could resist?"@en ;
