new waterford girl

Hard not to like Mooney Pottie, a surly 15-year-old geek whose every pore screams “get me out of this stinking seaside town!” That is until a spunky big town, New York gal moves in next door and pulls her out of her stifling funk. Thankfully, nothing in this gritty gem unfolds as expected. The headstrong newcomer cheerfully knocks out errant boyfriends. Pregnant teens flee Aunt Agnes’s Home for Wayward Girls. And Mooney’s unlikely escape plan nearly causes the town a collective nervous breakdown. Full of snarky “go girl” energy, kooky characters, and bleak yet striking scenery. A wicked find.
