N move far beyond the bright lights of Denver that float on the horizon before the daily suffocation of teen pregnancy eats her aliv. Sixteen year old Margaritte is constantly planning an escape route from her miserable circumstances A mix of Apache Chickasaw Cherokee and white she finds her Idaho Springs Colorado home nothing less than depressing Beyond ennui at home Margaritte has to deal with the daily stress of her volatile alcoholic father and a mother who can be eually explosive while helping care for her innocent six year old twin sisters She s tired of living on the cusp of poverty as well as being surrounded by teens who have no future aspirations High on their chart of escapism is drugs and alcohol while many girls succumb to teenage pregnancy a statistic that Margaritte has no intention of becoming Ironically Margaritte who drinks and smokes pot sees the wads of cash she hopes to bring in as a drug dealer and her new love Mike Walker as the ticket out of her loathsome life Yet the hope of a brighter future suddenly appears dismal when Margaritte learns that she s pregnantIn her debut novel Wurth has created a plethora of hardened teens and their means of survival in unforgiving conditions The story s protagonist narrator is Margaritte whose insistence on not becoming a loser truly earmarks her as an underdog as she struggles to go against the grain of her impoverished society The language Wurth uses which includes Lakota terminology is raw and visceral reflecting just how tough these teens are especially MargaritteWritten in first person Wurth s narrative is full of literary techniues that highlight themes of codependency amid Native American culture during the 1990s Of prominence is Wurth s use of a leitwortstil a purposeful repetition of words that usually expresses an important story motif or theme in the phrase for a Moment The intentional capitalization of the letter m tells the reader that various characters most often Margaritte are deliberately observing a situation and wondering why life is like it is as in this example between Margaritte and her motherMom was grading It seemed like she was always grading She looked up smiled her dark eyes full of exhaustion She touched the bruise on my face with the back of her fingertips and I took her hand We watched each other like that for a Moment and then our hands dropped and I ate my cerealWurth does an excellent job describing the devastating effects of codependency in drugs alcoholism and relationships Although Margaritte is eually a victim of codependency she sees the horrific results of meth and coke addicts and the damaging effect that alcoholism has on her father The vicious cycle of codependency is not limited to substance abuse Wurth focuses on codependency in relationships such as Margaritte s mother who is in denial fixed on the happy memories of the past and believes that her husband is getting better when clearly he is not Another example Mike and Margaritte s happy beginning that turns sour With codependency one expects plenty of conflicts almost like a ticking time bomb which are bound to explode at some point And indeed Wurth creates enough un hackneyed conflicts to keep her story fresh and constantly movingWithout specifically stating that the story takes place in the 1990s Wurth refers to items from that time period such as the hip hop and rap music the teens listen to Biggie TuPac TV shows The Electric Company popular book titles Hyperion by Dan Simmons early Stephen King novels and items like cassette tapes and rotary dial phonesKudos to Wurth for producing a gripping and heart wrenching narrative that is not only a must read for young adult and older readers but also
