A powerful and devastatingly honest story from a prize-winning author. This is the story of how thirteen year old Linda came to be involved in the murder of one man and the suicide of another. Living with her wayward mother, it's up to Linda to care for first one, then two younger brothers. As her mother moves from job to job and man to man, Linda finds herself growing up in a world where her vulnerability is no match for the endless abuse that leaves her with a wisdom and bitterness far beyond her years. Compelling, distressing, powerful and shocking, this is Linda's account of the facts. Facts that reveal a startling and unforgettable heroine whose deceptively simple narrative voice makes for the most incredible novel. A moving and brutal tale of an extraordinary girl you will never forget.
