On Tour 06/15/22-07/20/22 “Community Klepto” by Kelly I Hitchcock

Release Date: June 21, 2022

About The Book:

Ann Josephson is a twenty-something sociopath who dodges her friends as well as her well-to-do parents, even though they support her. Don’t even talk to her about dating. She even avoids her graphic design job when she can—and she works from home. But the one place Ann does go, and she goes religiously, is to the local community center gym. The problem is that when she arrives, her anxiety reaches fever pitch, expressing itself as compulsive kleptomania. Despite therapy, Ann can’t stop stealing.

Ann has made an art of studiously avoiding the worst the gym has to offer: grunting weightlifters, semi-naked grannies in the locker room, stroller moms hogging the track and, well, everyone else. But when a charming, semi-attractive guy starts chatting Ann up while on the treadmill next to hers, she finds herself drawn in, despite her fears. She doesn’t want him to know she’s a thief. For the first time in a long time, she’s connecting with someone.

Set in suburban Kansas City in 2012, COMMUNITY KLEPTO is a darkly humorous and compelling tale of a troubled young woman who discovers what risks are really worth taking, and that hope is fragile—but possible.
