Ten years ago, a pregnant seventeen-year-old, Angela Joy Palladino, fled her hometown, Scotia, West Virginia, as a pariah. Over time, AJ succeeded in establishing herself as an environmental activist, dubbed "The People's Champion," only to be forced to retreat from the spotlight in the wake of a crushing media disaster. When AJ is offered a job with a lawyer who is crusading against mountaintop removal mining, she is torn. As a single mother of a special-needs nine-year-old boy, AJ can use any work she can get. But doing so will mean returning to the West Virginia hometown she left in disgrace so long ago. Upon arriving in Scotia, AJ learns of the sudden death of the lawyer who hired her. Soon after joining forces with his daughter, Elizabeth, threats begin to surface, bodies begin to pile up, and AJ discovers that her own secrets aren't the only ones her mountain hometown has kept buried. Hitting rock bottom, AJ must face the betrayal of those once closest to her and confront the harrowing past she thought she had left behind. In Rock Bottom, Erin Brockovich combines passionate intensity, first-rate storytelling, and her real-life experiences in a novel that will leave you breathless.

Professional reviews

"Kick-ass environmental activist A.J. Palladino returns home with her young son to a small town in West Virginia to work for a lawyer who is battling a ruthless mining company. When the lawyer is found dead and his daughter appears to be the next target, A.J. takes on the town and faces old enemies to save the day. Coleen Marlo's smooth, clear voice, acting chops, and ability to make each character distinct cannot salvage this preachy novel, which could be titled "Erin Brockovich Redux." Even Marlo's considerable talent can't make up for the trite plot. A.C.P. (c) AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine"
