Relative Fortunes (Julia Kydd #1) by Marlowe BennIn 1920s New York, the price of a woman’s independence can be exorbitant—even fatal.

There have been plenty of times when he would barricade me inside my bedroom for the entire day, warning me if I came out he would beat me up.
It was born, I used it, and rooms fell eerily silent as soon as it left my mouth. Yolo belonged to the others , the younger people; it carbon-dated me and I was envious. But surely even the experts would admit there are some words that urgently need to be retired, or at least restricted to people under 25? This, then, is my highly subjective glossary of words that should be binned in — the most annoying, the most misused, the most broken. The main issue here is a fake sense of guilt. Because internet?
