Elizabeth Wennick

Jareth Gardnerís mother drinks too much and canít even remember his fatherís name. Jareth is involved in petty crime and his brother is so sick he may not live to be an adult. But in Elizabeth Wennickís Changing Jareth (Polestar $8.95), a first novel, the streetwise youth learns trust as a tool for survival. Like S.E. Hintonís The Outsiders, Jareth is rooted in contemporary street culture. 1-896095-97-6
