"Jailbait," by Leslea Newman, is a thoughtful lesson on life through the quirky voice of a teenage loner from Long Island. Finding no acceptance, Andi endures the critical comments of her aloof mother and needy father. At first, her only confidant is a fenced cow on route to school. But in time, Andi finds escape in Frank, an older man who is the first person to make her feel special. Through a series of meetings, Andi must decide how much she will surrender to Frank's unpredicatable and abusive behavior.
