Parker Ames debut novel is receiving multiple accolades from editorial reviewers:

Authors Reading: “Girl with a Future is a novel that reflects on both how easy it is to internalize negative forces, and how powerful a woman can become by resisting them.”

Kirkus Reviews wrote: “Ames offers a debut bildungsroman about a world-weary young Canadian woman who's smart about business but less savvy about relationships."

BlueInk Review: "Parker Ames delivers a bold, unvarnished portrayal of an individual struggling to find herself."

Ames’ novel is a great coming of age novel about the path of a young woman finding her individual identity, learning her own priorities and what she needs in life to be happy

In Ames’s novel, the protagonist, Angie, takes over her dying father’s business as a coffee machine vender. She wants to live up to her father’s words: “Work hard. Be smart. Do your best. Don’t quit. And enjoy yourself.”

Although Angie’s exploits may not be typical, the Girl with a Future’s plot explores the indecision, heartache, and hope many young people face. Through it all, she is determined to attend college as a business major. Her future is all planned out, but she soon discovers that providence isn’t that accommodating. She faces multiple setbacks to her career goals and drops out of college. Along the way in her search for meaning for her future, she doesn’t recognize the self-education she is receiving. She explores many options as she confronts obstacles to her plans. Questionable relationships and indecision lead her to “hit bottom” emotionally several times before she can extricate herself from the party mentality and begin to mature.

An interesting quote from the novel is delivered by the protagonist’s friend, Samuel. He tells her, “All of us live in the past in one way or another. We have these experiences that shape us and change us, and then everything that happens after that is reflective of that past.”
