book cover of Firefly


A novel by

Firefly lived in the park across from her mother’s home. It was safer there. But after the bad night happens and her baseball-bat-wielding mother is taken away, Social Services sends Firefly to live with her Aunt Gayle. She hardly knows Gayle, but discovers that she owns a costume shop.

Yes, Firefly might be suffering from PTSD, but she can get used to taking baths, sleeping on a bed again and wearing as many costumes as she can to school.

But where is “home”? What is “family”? Who is Firefly, for that matter…and which costume is the real one?
