What started as a short, short story, that morphed into a novella, that morphed into a 80,000 word novel, and could be more, is now live on Amazon. The Dime is what I like to describe as This Is Us meets young adults. Lily and Sophie were orphaned at a young age. Peter has an abusive father and neglectful mother. They come together in the town of Northville in a found family, reconnecting with joy and love, while continuing to deal with more trauma and drama.
Here’s what Kirkus Reviews has to say about the book. Shorter Kirkus:
Paxson’s slice-of-life novel presents an unusual kind of found family in a story that’s character-driven and compelling.
