Book Description

A Girl in the Dumpster by Jack Apfel

The Indie Book of the Day for 7th of October, 2012!

Genre: Contemporary, Domestic Life

A homeless woman with a memory problem; an older woman living alone above her resale shop; the shop owner’s near-agoraphobic teenage niece; a storefront preacher whose dream of a large congregation is fast fading and whose wife’s dream of a having a baby seems hopeless; a Realtor who has built her business into a success but at the cost of her success as a single mother–all have a connection to a single downtown block of the small town of Candlesberg. But they are neighbors in location only until they are drawn together by a baby found in the dumpster in the alley behind the block of buildings, a baby who changes each of their lives in one way or another.

And then there is the Realtor’s seventeen year old daughter, Angie. Her drug abuse and careless sex has made her life a dumpster of a different sort, one which she may not be able to escape alive.

With characters you’ll swear you know from somewhere and surprising plot twists that will keep you turning the pages Apfel has given us a compelling story of how a small thing like someone finding a baby in a dumpster can change so much.
