Unaccompanied Minors (Paperback)
Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
Taut and fearless, mixing innocence with daring honesty, Jones's stories overturn our understanding of what it means to be young. A man on a mission to "save" people finds himself drawn to a brothel; two young women create mayhem in a homeless shelter; a group of Evangelical American teenagers descends on a quiet Costa Rican sugar cane town; a girl who grows scales no doctor can remedy finds solace in a friendship with a classmate who doesn't eat. From the wilds of Tennessee to Costa Rica's gritty capitol city and suburban America, Unaccompanied Minors explores the consequences of acting in a world that rarely provides the accompaniment we expect.
