Review of Spin The Plate by Donna Anastasi

Spin The Plate by Donna Anastasi Paperback, Second Edition - July 2011, 196 pages Kindle Edition Published by Black Rose Writing

"Spin the Plate" is the story of Jo, a woman who has come through a traumatic childhood, not battered and broken, but powerful and enraged. A tattoo artist by day, she roams the streets of Boston at night to forget her past and feed her two passions: rescuing mistreated creatures and inflicting bodily harm on their perpetrators. Unassuming and unafraid, Francis, a man harboring a secret of his own, is the one person Jo can't seem to scare off. Right from the start, he sees clearly the caring soul buried deep within Jo's hard exterior and puts into motion a succession of life-altering happenings.

White could think of three: Is Santa real? Is the Tooth Fairy real? and What is sex? It was an awesome responsibility. White had to be careful. They were headed into town, WalMart to be exact. Jakey had spent the night…
