Seventeen-year-old Kat Stone is a fugitive. She grew up in a Tennessee trailer park with her Argentinian mother, her American father, and her diabetic sister, Bree. When she gets sucked into a bank heist gang in order to fund her sister’s medication, her entire life spirals out of control when it ends in her face plastered across every American newspaper. She procures a fake passport, steals a car and hightails it to Argentina to start over, to start fresh, to go back to a life on the straight and narrow. But her criminal life follows close behind, and she’s forced to face her past mistakes while navigating a foreign landscape. Told in intertwined timelines of Kat’s criminal beginnings in Tennessee and her new life in Argentina, this manuscript blends the commercial and the literary.
