"All MESSED UP and NOWHERE to go?

Bordertown lies halfway between the world of humans and the realm of Faerie. Here, elf and human gangs clash by night, magic works better than technology, and runaways like Ron show up with dreams of changing themselves into someone new. Ron's come searching for something he thought he's lost, but instead he finds all sorts of other things - a makeshift family of punk castaways; a friend in half-elf biker Mooner; and maybe true love in Mooner's beautiful - and dangerous - sister, Wiseguy.

Getting to Bordertown took Ron a bit of luck and magic. Surviving there will be another story altogether." -- from the back cover

My thoughts:

I enjoyed this urban fantasy set in the NeverNever. I especially liked the interactions between Ron and the people he meets.
