In 1961, a small town in Minnesota suffers a series of disturbing events. Frank Drum is 13 and looking forward to his summer when things begin to go horribly wrong, leading to a mystery that has the whole town talking. Frank and his family go through the valley of darkness, and his father, the Methodist minister, no longer has all the answers.
Krueger’s eloquent prose brings the time and place to life, introducing readers to a town populated by wounded, flawed, and fallible people. And as Frank seeks to find his footing in the new world of adulthood, this novel is anything but ordinary. (Atria)
