When her best guy friend falls victim to a vicious hate
crime, sixteen-year-old Cat sets out to discover who in her
small town did it. Richly atmospheric, this daring mystery
mines the secrets of a tightly knit Southern community and
examines the strength of will it takes to go against
everyone you know in the name of justice.
Against a backdrop of poverty, clannishness, drugs, and
intolerance, Myracle has crafted a harrowing coming-of-age
tale couched in a deeply intelligent mystery. Smart,
fearless, and compassionate, this is an unforgettable work
from a beloved author.
