Robin Amada Tzuckerabout this book: Several years ago the Seattle Times ran various articles about teen prostitution and the number of young girls who were being bought and sold up and down the I-5 corridor between Seattle and Portland. I couldn't stop thinking about these girls and the character of Kylie was born. Somehow her story got tangled up with the story of two foster kids who run away from their homes in Bakersfield, California and when the three of them met up in Portland I decided to just follow the story as it unfolded.
When I finished writing this book I thought I would be done thinking about the characters. But it didn't work out that way. They still live on in my imagination. I find myself wondering what they are up to and how their lives turned out. And that's my hope for my readers ... that the characters come as alive for them as they are for me and that they too care about what happens to Alissa, Trent, Kylie and the others who belong to Run Away Home.
