"Yost’s (Votives, 2017, etc.) prose is meditative, imbuing
the milieu of the small city with existential weight. Lee is
well-developed as a central character, sadly realistic about
her hometown (“Toledo never had anything to offer
teenagers or college kids…they were the lost generation
redone. In Toledo, we sought dark woods and abandoned
alleys in which to get stoned or screwed, then faced the
endless problem of what to do after burning the joint or
buttoning the pants. Prospects were bleak for the
unimaginative”)." KIRKUS REVIEW
Youth at Risk, a novel.
Betrayed by her girlfriend and stalled in her career, Lee Bauer takes to the road to revitalize her sense of purpose. But west-coast hookups, fights with street kids, and misguided vision quests fail to invigorate her, forcing her to ransack her personal and workplace relationships for new ways to flourish.
