What's a writer to do when her characters start to run amok?

Two characters from Lisa de Nikolits' newest novel, Between the Cracks She Fell (Inanna Publications), come to life in this fresh spin on the book trailer.

Joss has lost her job, her boyfriend and her house all in one fell swoop. She's living in a vacant school building, at a loss for what to do next when she meets Lenny, the charismatic but morally questionable leader of a teenage gang living in the same abandoned complex as Joss.

As Joss meets more of the disenfranchised and desperate youth in the area, the danger that surrounds Lenny grows. A dead body, a revealing diary and the unexpected return of Joss' boyfriend as a born again Christian turn an already complicated situation into a whirlwind of betrayal, hope and uncertainty.

In this video, you get to hear from Joss and Lenny themselves, chatting without the help of their author. Check it out and see how to it feels to see characters come to life.
