As they negotiate the rough ride of personal growth and strained friendship, the mutual dream that drove them to the pact begins to unravel. Set at breakneck speed, Working Parts dazzles with its vibrant prose, memorable characters, and snappy dialogue. Bledsoe's increasing number of fans will eagerly welcome this fully realized story.
