"Mesmerizing." -- The New York Times Book Review

Michael Hiebert's remarkable debut novel tells the riveting story of a small southern town haunted by tragedy, one brave woman's struggle to put a troubling mystery to rest--and its impact on the sensitive boy who comes of age in the midst of it all...

Fourteen-year-old Mary Ann Dailey took the bus home from school as usual. Somewhere along the way she vanished. Only days later, Tiffany Michelle Yates disappeared, last seen holding an ice cream cone and wearing a pink dress.

Twelve years earlier, the town of Alvin, Alabama, lost another of its daughters, her lifeless body eventually found beneath a willow tree. Abe Teal wasn't even born then. Now his life will never be the same.

As his mother Leah, the town's sole detective, tackles the case, Abe watches a mystery sink deep into the town's murky past. Painful secrets, long hidden, seem to beckon to him. But Abe isn't sure he--or anyone--is ready to face the truth . . .

"One of the best books I've read in a long, long while." --Lisa Jackson, New York Times bestselling author

"Michael Hiebert's debut delivers . . . a breathless, will-they-get-there-in-time affair, with a heartbreaking resolution." -- Mystery Scene

I really enjoyed this book, written from the perspective of and 11/12 yr. old boy. I usually don't like the gory details of crime books, and this had a few, but it was interesting to read and I enjoyed the characters. Intense at the end, a little bit like the ending of an episode of SVU,but still worth reading. I probably wouldn't recommend for kids, even though the narrator is a young boy.
