DIRTY LITTLE ANGELS, a Novel by Chris Tusa (University of West Alabama, 2009)

Dirty Little Angels

Set in the fictional town of Jupiter, Louisiana, Dirty Little Angels is the story of sixteen year old Hailey Trosclair. When the Trosclair family suffers a string of financial hardships and a miscarriage, Hailey finds herself looking to God to save her family. When her prayers go unanswered, Hailey puts her faith in Moses Watkins, a failed preacher and ex-con. Fascinated by Moses' lopsided view of religion, Hailey, and her brother Cyrus, begin spending time down at an abandoned bank that Moses plans to convert into a drive-through church. Gradually, though, Moses' twisted religious beliefs become increasingly more violent, and Hailey and Cyrus soon find themselves trapped in a world of danger and fear from which there may be no escape.

Praise for Dirty Little Angels

Dirty Little Angels is rich with characters who are beautifully flawed and within arm’s reach of redemption. Troubled yet pure hearted, fourteen-year-old Hailey ultimately reveals, to those willing to see it, that the truth does set you free. This is a raw and tender debut.

--Ronlyn Domingue, author of The Mercy of Thin Air

Dirty Little Angels is literary, but alive and muscular at the same time. This is a book that deserves to be published.

--John R. Reed, author of Thirteen Mountain and The Kingfisher's Call
