Can’t I Walk Home Alone?
It is Mid-April 1988, after this teenager had turned 16, Detailing how just walking a few blocks home from school can be a Life Changing event. Not one former friend her own age wanted to be seen with her, though she is the Captain of the A-string cheerleaders for Cedarville’s football, basketball, and baseball. She’s placed first in every track event since joining the track team last year, she’s cute and very athletic.
A Colombian Cartel wants her kidnapped, the Midwest Independent Boys crime syndicate out of Tulsa wants her DEAD. Shelby Gore has never missed being in church one Sunday in her entire life, she’s a 4.0 GPA student, but a lot of students and several teachers would like to see her get expelled. This girl has a reputation for being boy-crazy without ever having one relationship. She drives her Dad’s company pickup and her Mom’s Buick, without having a license, usually she just takes her skate-board.
Cedarville is a quiet little South Missouri town of 1400, over 1,000 employees work at the local steel plant including Shelby’s Dad. Within the next hour there will be five dead bodies as students watch a scene unfold in total disbelief, that should not happen in broad day-light in a small South Missouri town.
