C I N

By: Christina Leigh Pritchard

“Lynn, Lynn, city of sin; you never come out the way you went in.”

Seventeen year old Lisa Brown’s life is falling apart. First, her mother and father divorce, then their house forecloses and now, her mother has decided to commit herself to a phyciatric hospital.

If that weren’t enough, she must leave sunny South Florida to attend a boarding school full of geniuses in cold, Lynn Massachusetts. The city where the locals taunt “Lynn, Lynn, city of sin; you never come out the way you went in.”

And, they aren’t kidding. Lisa must live in a tiny shack with two strange teenagers who are not her cousins, a dog named Pig who growls when you look at him and a cat named Rat. “Mind the cat,” everyone says.

Lisa thinks she’s landed in her own house of horrors with the anti-social Alex and his facicious sister Ally. But, the real drama begins the day she is struck by lightning… Read an excerpt.
