Adults and teens will enjoy this novel, which focuses on the experiences of a young teenage girl, raised by her father in California, who goes to live with her mother and sister in Minneapolis. Themes of addiction, poverty, and familial loyalty, along with realistic details, give the story a verisimilitude rarely seen in books with such a young protagonist.

The author tells the compelling story of Faina McCoy, a young girl caught in a perilous scheme of elaborate lies created for her own harrowing system of survival. Faina is uprooted against her will from her father and finds herself with a mother who abandoned her years ago and can't live without her now. She fends for herself as she navigated the streets of Minneapolis and forges bond with liars and outlaws.
