"If you're a parent, you've likely said it yourself. Now, after reading Mary Billiter's debut novel Not My Kid, you'll be using the phrase in a whole new way--as in, 'You've just got to read Not My Kid.' The novel is about small-town living in the West, single parenthood, working moms, kids in trouble, troubled adults. And Mary Billiter gets it all just right."
--Tina Welling, Author of the novel, Cowboys Never Cry
"It's the intimacy and sense of detail that makes Mary Billiter's Not My Kid a nightmare for every parent and pleasure for every reader."
--Craig Johnson, author of The Cold Dish and Hell is Empty
"Mary Billiter doesn't blink when staring head on into a parent's greatest nightmare. In a fresh new voice from the west, she dives straight down into the deepest fears of the human heart. Not My Kid is a book to be savored."
--Tim Sandlin, author of ten books, including The GroVont Quartet
