Title: The Sharp Time by Mary O'Connell
Published by: Delacorte Press
Release date: November 8th, 2011
Sandinista Jones is a high school senior with a punk rock name and a broken heart. The death of her single mother has left Sandinista alone in the world, subject to the random vulnerability of everyday life. When the school system lets her down, her grief and instability intensify, and she ponders a violent act of revenge.
Still, in the midst of her crisis, she gets a job at The Pale Circus, a funky vintage clothing shop, and finds friendship and camaraderie with her coworker, a boy struggling with
his own secrets.
Even as Sandinista sees the failures of those with power and authority, she's offered the chance to survive through the redemptive power of friendship. Now she must choose between faith and forgiveness or violence and vengeance.
Why I want to read it:  The synopsis sounds really good.  My guess is that the novel is about of self-discovery and pain, but it seems to have a positive message.  The cover is beautiful too, right?
