St. Christopher on Pluto

ISBN-978-1-949199-26-0

MK and Colleen get reacquainted while working in different stores at a bankrupt mall. After ditching Colleen's car to collect the insurance, they drive from one unexpected event to the next in Big Blue, MK's Buick clunker with a St. Christopher statue glued to the dash. The glow-in-the-dark icon guides them past the farm debris, mine ruins, and fracking waste of Pennsylvania's Appalachia North. Yet their world is not dystopian. Rather, MK and Colleen show why, amidst all the desperation, there is still a community of hope, joy, laughter, and goodwill.​
