Publisher's Summary

A recipient of the Alva Englund Fellowship and the Maurice Prize for Fiction, Melanie Thorne penned this tender debut brimming with evocative prose. At 14, Elizabeth Reid is searching for a place she and her sister Jaime can call home. Neglected by a father with more vices than work ethic and ignored by a mother bent on starting a new life with an ex-con, Liz bounces between distant relatives in California and Utah. But before Liz can find peace, she must come to terms with the ugly deal she struck to ensure Jaime’s safety - one that has a hold on them both.

Story, 4. Reader, 3.

Some audio books sound like the reader/main character is genuinely speaking their own thoughts. (Girl on a Train) however, this one sounded like the reader was just reading a story aloud, like you would at a library. I felt that her reading style was also lighter than the subject matter. The book could have been darker and more intense with a more genuine reader. Overall, the story was ok, but I didn't buy the narrator at all. Probably won't listen to anything else she reads.
