Nickels follows a biracial girl named "Little Miss So and So", from age 4-1/2 into adulthood. Told in a series of prose poems, Nickels' lyrical and inventive language conveys the dissociative states born of a world formed by persistent and brutal incest and homophobia. The dissociative states enable the child's survival and, ultimately, the adult's healing. The story is both heartbreaking and triumphant. Nickels is the groundbreaking debut of Minneapolis-area author and artist Christine Stark.
"Christine Stark has crafted a language and a diction commensurate with the shredding of consciousness that is a consequence of childhood sexual abuse. She brings us a wholly original voice in a riveting novel of desperation and love. Every sentence vibrates with a terrible beauty. Every sentence brings the news."
--Patricia Weaver Francisco, author of Telling: A Memoir of Rape and Recovery
"To be taken into the mind of a child can be an enchanting adventure, but to be taken into the mind of a child who is abused, confused, and taken for granted is a lingering, livid journey. I applaud her fortitude to bring an olden--too long ignored-- truth out of the darkness with blazing, innovative light."
--MariJo Moore, author of The Diamond Doorknob
"In Nickels, Christine Stark, powerfully portrays the story of abuse and its impact on our lives. When this beautifully written and compelling story leaves, you are left wanting more. It's riveting; a book that will capture you from the beginning and carry you through the end. Everyone should read this book."
--Olga Trujillo, author of The Sum of My Parts
NICKLES is told in the first person from the view of a 4 year old to start. The writer takes us deep into the dark passages of incest and abuse of a small child from her viewpoint. This was not an easy book to read yet I was compelled to finish it. This book captured me from the first page and I simply could not put it down!
I cried, not just teary eyed, I mean I actually cried my eyes out trying to explain the book to my husband. It is not for the faint of heart or someone looking for entertainment. NICKLES takes us into the mind of a very small child and we the readers are able to see and feel how she tries to cope with the everyday tortures of abuse. I cannot recommend this for reading by people who have suffered from sexual abuse in their past. It isa dark and tormenting tale.
Now for the giveaway. The author is kind enough to let me give Two of my readers a chance to win a copy of NICKELS for themselves. Each winner may select printed or eBook (Kindle, Nook, or Kobo) for their copy depending on what they personally prefer. This is open to the US who are 18+. The giveaway will run from 4/6 to 4/20.

I am so glad I got to read this book. I love how I felt like the book was at my level with the people in the book. Now this book uses strong language but its nothing that I don't hear everyday while hanging out with my friends. The B.I.B. is a single mom in her 30's and I could relate to her since I am a mom in my 30's. I like how she can pull off the whole mom and super hero with no one knowing who she is not even her daughter Paige. This has so many twists and turns that I couldn't stop reading. I wanted to know more. I found myself cheering for the B.I.B. Just when you think you know whats going to happen next you are amazed at how it does happen. I would give this book an A-. I just wish it didn't have to end. I could of kept reading. I however will warn that this isn't for anyone to read unless you are ready for the harsh language and adult content. I loved it but to each there own when it comes to down to it. I would love to see a Super Born 2.
The book was signed by the author and had a personal note to me. I love when authors do this.

I won Nordic Naturals Pet Cod Liver Oil from Bodhi's Meow. I was very surprised over this win. I got way more than the Cod Liver Oil. The box contained samples & more. As soon as I set all the goodies out for a picture my cat Princess was all about the Cod Liver Oil. I tried to get a picture with her not in it but I couldn't get her to stay away. I then took the oil and put some on my cats and dogs food. My cats loved it and my dogs did too.
Look at everything I got! This win rocked!
Princess really wanting the Nordic Naturals Pet Cod Liver Oil.
Princess wishing she could open the bottle.
Gemini not wanting to stop eating for a picture. I think its safe to say she likes it.
After much calling her name she finally lifted her head for a pic.
