When a small grave is discovered in their backyard, 15-year-old Mosey Slocumb becomes determined to find out why. Mosey's mother, haunted by her own teenage demons, struggles to keep the past where she left it: behind her. But Mosey wants answers and she will have to learn that while on the cusp of womanhood, innocence can be gained and lost.
Join us as we discuss what Sara Gruen, New York Times-bestselling author of Water for Elephants, calls "a heart-thumping mystery, an edge-of-your-seat drama, and a fiercely sweet comedy all at once, with a fistful of crazy-brave characters who reach from up the wild pages and grip your heart."
Copies are available for check-out.
