Set in rural northwest Kansas, COUNTY LINE tells the story of 17-year-old Lois’ journey after the arrest of her father. Lois is sentenced to the strict confines of a foster home run by Tanya – a woman who is not your typical guardian and owns the County Line Truck Stop & Travel Center, where Lois encounters both her first look at the subtle terrors one human can inflict upon another and a lifeline to humanity that will ultimately save her.
“County Line” champions the difficult subject of teenagers trapped in bad foster home situations. Wells treats the issue with honesty, compassion and restraint while resisting the urge for bombast and browbeating. 5 out of 5 stars” -- The Detroit Examiner
