I've had a little help already, and this is only the description paragraph, not the intro or the bio. I'm mainly interested in initial reactions. How this impacts you and if it makes you interested in reading the work. Basically: is it effective? Grammatical suggestions welcome. The average age of a runaway girl who suffers sexual exploitation is only thirteen. Mykhaila is just another statistic, running away from her neglectful mother only to endure horrific abuse at the hands of a scheming junkie. Now physically and mentally scarred, she survives on the street by forming tense relationships with various characters including Dan, an overweight security guard who lets her sleep in the safety of a cemetery. Dan has his own agenda, but Mykhaila refuses to surrender her innate belief that people are not evil, just weak. Following a misguided admiration of Mother Teresa, she cares for the neglected and lonely souls in the poverty-ravaged neighbourhood dubbed Needle Town, secretly craving small moments of love and affection. Her fragile world suddenly falls apart when Dan commits a series of horrific acts, culminating in a gruesome suicide. Exhausted by relentless disappointment and consumed by despair, Mykhaila sees only one way to escape.
