Synopsis: A terrible mistake tests friendships in this stirring novel that John Corey Whaley calls “a literary knockout.”  
 
Olivia has spent her whole life struggling to escape the shadow of her mother, Lillian, a woman so troubled she drowned herself in a river at age eighteen. Olivia’s only outlets in their small Louisiana town are her best friend, Jamie, her handsome but hot-tempered boyfriend, Max, and their wild-child friend, Maggie.
When a terrible fight between Jamie and his father turns deadly, all Olivia can think to do is grab her friends and run. In a flash, the four become fugitives on the road to New Orleans, where they hope to find a solution to an unfixable problem.
Shalanda Stanley’s breathtaking debut explores the deep ties between legacy, loyalty, and love, even as it asks the question: How far would you go to save a friend?
 
Praise:
