Read full description of the books Salty Miss Tenderloin:“. . . the book is amazing, wonderful, fabulous—oh hell, there aren’t words! I couldn’t and didn’t put it down until the last ten pages . . . . Your characterization in “Salty” is forever with me.” M. Karch, Cincinnati, OH
Starlight Nox was born on the gritty streets of San Francisco’s Tenderloin District when Jimi Hendrix and the Vietnam War were center stage. She learns at an early age to rummage food from dumpsters and collect clothes from the corner charity for survival. When Star’s father dies with a needle in his arm and her mother disappears searching for her next fix, the scrappy twelve-year-old is adopted by wealthy grandparents. Uprooted from San Francisco to Cincinnati, Star spends the next two decades learning that danger doesn’t lurk just in pimps and pill pushers on Turk Street. She discovers that evil finds a welcome host in tailored suits and Chanel dresses and even glossy church pews. Star calls on her early, bitter lessons from the streets to navigate the more sinister roads she travels as a young woman.
Salty Miss Tenderloin is a fiercely tender coming-of-age story that proves the transition from child to adult is a process that repeats itself many times in life. Coming-of-age is about survival. For the lucky, the change begins with a raging gnaw of desire; for the unlucky, the change begins with a crying gnaw of hunger. For Starlight Nox, the treacherous journey begins much too early in life and continues to test her ability to grow and persevere, time and time again.
