Abstract: This thesis is the first half of my novel-in-progress, The Insatiable Charlotte. It is the work of my last few semesters at UNCG in the MFA creative writing program. It is the story of a young woman, Charlotte, who lives in San Antonio, Texas. After growing up with her father and sick mother in a conservative Christian community, in highschool she makes friends with a girl, Tory, and gets involved in drugs. Charlotte soon after falls pregnant and ends up, because of a heroin bust, in jail. The novel begins soon after Charlotte is released from prison and documents her struggles on the streets and attempts to get her three-year-old daughter, Kara, back. After she can not find a way to regain custody of her daughter, she soon falls into more trouble with her earlier crowd of friends. When her daughter is threatened, Charlotte decides to kidnap Kara, take her on the road and begin a new life. This thesis is the first half of the novel, and ends just after Kara is kidnapped.
