Last Summer At Barebones Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Last Summer At Barebones

Picture a different Cinderella: one who wasn't pretty, whose ball was a disaster, and whom a prince didn't rescue the next day, and who now (estranged from the world) ekes out a living writing nasty diatribes for trashy newspapers. In Last Summer At Barebones, Dee Graham is such a Cinderella, and when she chances upon her long-lost sister, this Cinderella gets herself a gun. But first, she tells her tale of why she's still angry enough to kill.
