Mary Shelley, Author's Introduction to Frankenstein" 1831
It's 1812 and the country is coming apart at the seams.
War, poverty, and riots make it a dangerous place for a young girl
but after a furious row with her stepmother she is sent away from
home, alone, into the care of the rich and radical Baxter family of
Dundee. Mary Wollstonecraft Godwin is 14 and hasn't met
the man who will make her Mary Shelley yet. She hasn't done
anything yet. But her genius for finding trouble pitches her into a
world of politicians, revolutionaries, lunatics, American
fugitives, and the ladies of The Glassite Church Floral Tea
In 2017, Roxanne had so much studying to do for school she nearly didn't go to the party on Peep O'Day Lane. But everyone needs a night off, right? She doesn't mean to crash out but when someone takes a topless photo of her, Roxanne's life as she knows it is over.
Unless it isn't.
