Stories from the Stoop
Angel Rodrigues, author
Stories from The Stoop is the story of Abby, a teenager growing up with her single mother Maggie. Maggie struggles with an addiction to alcohol, men, Jesus, and mental illness. Abby tells her story while asking, "What would happen if one woman told the truth about her life?" and finds out, "The world would split open." (Muriel Rukeyser) Stories from The Stoop takes readers on a journey across state lines, taboos, and tragedies, while reminding readers that we all aren't trees and can move on when the environment we live in becomes inhabitable.
