Never Say Stark Naked
Phoebe's small-town world seems to close in on her, constricting her life and choices. Her only choice is to flee: she boards a train to New York City, hoping to never have to look back. She finds work with a flamboyant public relations executive and socialite. Plunged into a universe of lavish parties and sophisticated chatter, her naivete makes her a refreshing, enticing oddity among the glamorous and the cynical. But ultimately, Phoebe cannot disregard the agony of her past if she is to fight to belong and to be happy in her adopted city.
