OU COULD STOP IT HERE is about girls who are trapped. From the suburbs of Austin to the sublets of New York City, they are searching for an escape from destructive relationships, parents caught up in second romances and Bunko, and the embarrassments of adolescence. Their beliefs that bravery is transformative lead them to make risky decisions that promise shaky rewards: the attentions of an older lover, an idolized sister's approval, or the preservation of a forbidden relationship. This is a collection about accepting the wrong invitations, the rush to be unburdened by innocence, and the desires, both juvenile and inevitable, that fuel irreparable mistakes. It is about the desperation and longing inherent in the struggle to become whole, and the realization that adulthood won't protect us from hurt.

This is a used copy in good condition with some moderate wear, including to the edges of the cover.

By Stacy Austin Egan. Paperback. 52 pages. Published by Pank Books, 2018.
