"This is a furious blaze of a book that will rough you up and reorder your sense of the world and what's possible in it. It's a debut for the ages. Read it."-Laura van den Berg, author of Find Me

Nikki is the most determined young woman in the North Carolina hills. Determined not to let deadbeats and dropouts set her future. Determined to use whatever tools she can get her hands on to shape the world to her will. Determined to preserve her family's domination of the local drug trade. Nikki is thirteen years old.

Opening with a fatal plunge from a high cliff, Young God rushes forward as it charts Nikki's battles against isolation and victimhood. Nikki may be young, but she's a fast learner, and soon she learns exactly how to wield her powers over the people around her. The only thing slowing her down is the inheritance she's been promised but can't seem to find, buried somewhere in those hills and always just out of reach."A coming of age story by way of Breaking Bad" (The Rumpus), Young God is a brash and electrifying novel that demands your attention and refuses to be forgotten.
