Robin’s Blue  – Pam Alster  (2012)

This story follows the life of a self-destructive young woman, Robin Daniels, through the 1970s and 1980s.  The novel begins with Robin being a hard partying sixteen-year-old who becomes involved with drugs and married men.  We follow Robin as she continually makes dangerous choices through her life.  Her drug use escalates and she supports herself by drifting between men and eventually getting sucked into prostitution.  Throughout the novel, Robin has points where the reader hopes she sees her reality and will choose the right path, however, Robin just spirals continually downward.  Robin’s intelligence is obvious, yet frustrating to the reader.  This dark novel is depressing, yet incredibly well written.
