Bikini Summer Girl

“Bikini Summer Girl” captures the ennui of adolescence, as seen through the eyes of 13-year-old Ginger. Caught in the turmoil of her stepfamily, Ginger struggles with bullying from her stepbrothers, and the strange, new feelings of shame over her developing feminine body. It is her father’s quiet courage that brings justice, and reveals the depth of his love for her.

(Note: Alas, we writers struggle not only with words, but with our names! I published this story before I had selected my pen name, Kira Marie McCullough; the only difference between the two names is the middle name (which is no longer one initial, “D,” but is now “Marie”).
