In Her Skin

Kim Savage

Savage (Beautiful Broken Girls, 2017) introduces Jolene Chastain, 15, a homeless teen and con artist who lives on the streets of Boston. Life hasn’t been easy and she hopes to cash in on a little safety and security by taking on the identity of Vivienne Weir who vanished when she was nine. Jo targets the unsuspecting Lovecrafts, Vivi's legal guardians whose daughter Temple was the missing girl's best friend. The family is quick to welcome Jo showering her with affection and money. But there’s something odd about the Lovecrafts that Jo can’t ignore. When the lines of deception begin to blur, will she continue her masquerade or escape the danger around her before it’s too late?
