Skipped

Jabberwocky Literary Agency, Inc.

Originally titled CHASING THE SKIP, Janci Patterson’s debut novel has earned praise from Booklist —“realistic, flawed, and dimensional characters”—Kirkus Reviews—“A solid cast and heartfelt emotions”— #NYT Bestseller Charlaine Harris—“a book I could recommend to almost any teenager,”— and Steelheart author Brandon Sanderson—a YA book with excellent writing and compelling characters.”

For fifteen-year-old Ricki, there’s only one thing to know about her bounty-hunter dad: he’s never been there for her. But when her mother leaves, Dad suddenly appears and pulls her along on the road, hunting for criminals who’ve skipped bail.

Ricki is sure she wants nothing to do with her father. She’s much more interested in Ian Burnham, the seventeen-year-old skip Dad’s chasing. Ian is confident and powerful and into her, everything that Ricki’s family isn’t. But Dad seems to think he can tell her what to do after all these years —and he says stay away from Ian.

On the road with only the skip and her dead-beat dad, will Ricki ever figure out who she can trust?
