Surviving an encounter at gunpoint in a New York City park, twenty-one-year-old Ellis finds herself avoiding everyone including the police, her boyfriends, and her therapist, a choice she reevaluates when she accompanies her mother on a mission in the Philippines. A first novel. 40,000 first printing.

Blackwell North Amer
The gun in question is pointed at twenty-one-year-old Ellis as she walks through a New York City park. In the end she is unrobbed and physically unharmed. But she is left psychologically reeling.
Over the next few weeks Ellis keeps everyone at bay: the police, the men who want to save her ("the ROTC boy" poet and "the red-faced representative of the world"), and the university therapist who hints that her sweaters may be too tight. But when Ellis accompanies her mother, a nurse, on a mission to the Philippines, she finds that life - even if held up - cannot be held back, and neither, finally, can she.
