The Candy Darlings
Licorice, suckers, bubblegum, melt-aways, mints... The candy became an obsession between two outcasts—one who only wanted to fit in, the other who knew she never would.
Urban legends, rumours, lies, myths, mysteries, fairy tales... Stories, in all their magical forms, bound them together.
"Satin Chocolate-Covered Chicken Bones,""Astro Pop,""Fun Dip,""Thrills"... The candy stories—outrageous, twisted, hysterical—were an escape from a harsh reality and revealed a startling truth.
Darkly lyrical, sensual, suspenseful, and disturbing, The Candy Darlings is a celebration of friendship, story, and the power of each to help you define yourself—or simply survive.
