4 novellas in one, with (not surprisingly) Cars and Girls as the central themes, although sex and violence also get a big outing.

From the Blurb:

Bad things happen. Everybody dies. But the girl in the red dress kicks against the pricks. Four merciless and compelling stories by emerging writers from Canada, the UK, and USA.

From behind the wheel of her father's lovingly restored Barracuda, a waitress will protect her baby sister at all costs.
