This sexy debut novel set in Detroit, Michigan, follows teenager Olivia Nelson from her sheltered suburban home into the city as she comes of age.
Rebellious and curious, Olivia has an intense desire to move beyond her middle-class confines to learn about science, nature and the relationships that make people tick. Her quirky perspectives color her understanding. The person most empathetic to her uncommon take on the world is Max. He shares humor and stories with her and relishes their liaisons, but he has his own significant set of problems stemming from an abusive father. None of this stops Olivia and Max from seeking and testing friendship and passion and finding their limits in the process of growing up.
At the approach to their launch into adulthood, Olivia and Max each attempt to position themselves for the big next step. Olivia readies to go off to college and Max to the military. In the final weeks under her parent's roof, Olivia makes the decision to point her life on an alternative trajectory - one that will dramatically impact her set of experiences. She chooses to find her own path instead of complying with expectations that she reign in her impulses to study at a university. Life in Detroit is its own type of education. Reuniting with Max is exciting and heartbreaking as they face the adult difficulties of working class lives. Throughout, Olivia is witness to a capacity for corruption and injustice of people in positions of power, those close to her, and that which is within her.
Turn is a story of exploring an attempting to understand a bit beyond the typical boundaries, making mistakes, and living with consequences. It is a love story of trials and endurance.
