Pretty Bad Things

Paisley and Beau were the stuff of headlines when they were young and wandered off and got lost in the woods after their mother's death. Now Paisley lives at yet another boarding school and Beau lives with their guardian and grandmother. Paisley flees (well, she is expelled) from another school and convinces Beau to head off with her to Las Vegas to find their father, now out of prison and still hoping for a relationship with his children. What follows is an adventure fraught with danger, dark deeds, and doughnuts. PRETTY BAD THINGS by C.J. Skuse (Chicken House 2011) shows the lengths Paisley is willing to go to find her father and prove her grandmother for the fraud she is. <332>
