Abstract (Summary)

Latchkey Girls is a collection of eight stories that are driven by observant, semi-solitary women in the early 1990s, ranging in age from pre-teen to late twenties. Linked by setting and theme, each piece takes place within the San Fernando Valley region of Los Angeles and features damaged women. The female protagonists are all insecure in some form, and they struggle not to let their insecurity affect their various relationships with family, friends, and men. The fragility of these girls showcases, in my opinion, how a lack of guidance can have a detrimental effect.
