"You can't give a monster a funeral..."
Stuck in the middle of nowhere, with a abusive mother, a manipulative best friend, and the rotting corpse of a dog, something ugly is brewing inside of Lang Deidre Collins. She may try to be good, but when two ancient women come to wreak havoc, Lang finds it harder and harder to resist the urge to be bad. As her anger begins to spill over and an hideous power is invoked, Lang must decide whether the freedom to be wrathful is worth the cost of a normal life. A reverse bildungsroman of terrifying proportions, I'M ALIVE YOU BASTARDS AND I ALWAYS WILL BE by Roxie Perkins, asks us if there will ever be a place in the world for angry, wicked little girls.
