Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0615851118, Paperback)When thirty year-old Vandelyn Devanlay moved to a new town to begin a new career, she was so optimistic. She was going to leave her imperfect and sometimes painful past behind and make a fresh start. Or so she thought. But when Vandelyn makes one fresh start too many, this time with a criminal record, she begins to question how her life ended up here: locked-up in a Chattanooga jail, dressed like a hooker. Is it because her initials are V.D.? Or her sarcastic wit? Is it because she and her brother grew up as the seriously screwed-up Wonder Twins? Her dysfunctional dating relationships? Who knows? Vandelyn sure doesn’t, but if she doesn’t want her life to continue spiraling out-of-control, she’s going to have to figure it out. Question is, how will Vandelyn find peace when all she’s ever known is dysfunction? In Vandelyn’s quest for peace, she discovers that she must acknowledge and accept her past hurts—her father’s abandonment of their family; the bullying of her brother by their peers; and her heart-aching-on-again-off-again relationship with Thibodeaux, a young man who emotionally withdraws from her. As she searches for Truth, her growing awareness of latent and sometimes blatant racism, class warfare, and homophobia challenges her to focus on who she is and what kind of person she will choose to become. Thoughts of Vandalism is a humorous adventure of self-discovery. Once you pick this book up, you will not want to put it down.
