'"How about we toss a coin? Heads, it's west and a lift. Tails, it's still west, but no lift."

'James is heading into the country on his first teacher-training round when a mysterious girl asks him for a ride. Sophie has him all worked out: "You live with your parents and they bought you this car, and a very nice car it is too..." At first James can't see past her wild hair and attitude, but then Sophie trusts him with a secret she's been keeping too long.

'Steven Herrick masterfully reveals the essence of his characters in this tough and tender story about opening up to love and living a life that's true. Black Painted Fingernails is a captivating novel by the author of By the River and other popular, award-winning books.' (From the publisher's website.)
