The Pelican Bar - A 15 year-old girl who is apparently abusing drugs and otherwise misbehaving is shipped off on her birthday to an intensive rehab/boarding school, where she's treated like crap from the get-go. Her parents ignore her initial plea to rescue her and she's kept until she turns 18. I'm still trying to determine where this story is going
Booth's ghost - A story about the family of John Wilkes booth - Lincoln's assassin. It fleshes out how various members of the family rose to prominence as some of the premier actors in pre-civil war America. When Lincoln is shot, they are no longer adored and some find themselves under suspicion of crimes as well. Interesting
