Serendipity "Pity" Jones is a seventeen-year-old gunslinger in a futuristic wild west world.
Welcome to Cessation, Serendipity Jones. The last place on the continent where you can do whatever the hell you want.
Right and wrong isn’t so easy, is it? Sometimes the choices we make are a little bit of both.Half-orphaned (what a twist from the normal fully-orphaned YA heroines...) Pity soon learns that her father plans to essentially sell her off to a different commune (she's a fertile myrtle).
It’s an ugly world, and we need to take what happiness we can, when we can.You're never too old for YA... however, you do get too old for bad YA.

“Welcome, all of you, Serendipity Jones - deadliest shot in the west!”
