Lori Taylor is a top-notch bicycle mechanic and a smart woman with well-oiled charisma. And, she can't read. Her best friend Mickey is long on literacy but comes up short in matters of love. The two friends enter into a pact that leads to dangerous emotional territory. But as they negotiate the rough ride of personal growth, the mutual dream that drives them begins to unravel.... WORKING PARTS is a novel that taps the essence of friendship and the potential unleashed when we face our most intense fears.
"...to witness this wonderfully original character find renewal in a previously alien landscape makes for a liberating and joyous excursion in reading."
