Hick (Unbridled Books)

The LA Times calls Hick "a bracing drama, a study in tenacity against the gnarled teeth of domestic storms." This debut novel by Echo Park resident Portes follows the exploits of 13-year-old Luli on an often harrowing, often hilarious road trip that takes her from a town with no future into her own.
