Publisher's Summary

Just after her mother's funeral, five-year-old Holly is dropped off by her father at her grandfather's South Carolina dairy farm. It will be 30 years before Holly sees her father again - plenty of time to develop a fondness for drinking and video poker. And also plenty of time to contemplate why her father abandoned her.

fantastic summer read

I'm not a novel lover by nature, and it's tough to keep my attention but this one really did the job. Really fun, gritty and insightful without being too deep. Reads like a movie.
