Reviews

"Narrated with a noirish sensibility, the novel follows a 27-year-old woman named LaDene Faye Howell as she recounts the tale of how and why she's currently in police custody. LaDene's narration is full of personality and flair. Miller has crafted a compelling cast of characters, from LaDene's churchgoing family to her fellow pregnant classmates at New Dawn Ministry to the overbearing faculty who ruthlessly rule the school. Even the humorous description of the crimes she committed with Bobby is rendered in engaging detail. Everyone from casual readers to the staunchest of mystery fans will find something to enjoy in this quick-and quick-witted--read." --Kirkus Reviews

"LaDene's voice propels us as she recounts her life of family dysfunction, religious fundamentalism, abuse, and how we can't escape the darker impulses of family even when we think we've broken from them. As her story unfolds, we witness how fast a person's life can unravel from a chance encounter. What I love is that the book starts with the confession of a crime, and suspense lies in how the heroine ended up there. For me, this makes it more compelling than the classic mystery or thriller. This suspense holds us to the end we thought we saw coming, but didn't." --Jerry D. Mathes II, author of Shipwrecks and Other Stories and Ahead of the Flaming Front: A Life on Fire
