Summary
The debut novel everyone is talking about... "The last page is as satisfying as the first.” Kathryn Stockett. "I really loved this book... I can't praise it enough.” Anne Rice. "It's a book to read and reread, one that will only get better with time.” Tom Franklin. It was the summer everything changed. My Sunshine Away unfolds in a Baton Rouge neighborhood best known for cookouts on sweltering summer afternoons, cauldrons of spicy crawfish, and passionate football fandom. But in the summer of 1989, when fifteen-year-old Lindy Simpson, free spirit, track star, and belle of the block experiences a horrible crime late one evening near her home, it becomes apparent that this idyllic stretch of Southern suburbia has a dark side, too. In My Sunshine Away, M.O. Walsh brilliantly juxtaposes the enchantment of a charmed childhood with the gripping story of a violent crime, unraveling families, and consuming adolescent love. Acutely wise and deeply honest, it is an astonishing and page-turning debut about the meaning of family, the power of memory, and our ability to forgive
Summary
A crime against a 15-year-old girl is examined through the eyes of one of her friends--a friend who admits to being a possible suspect in the crime. This is a wonderful debut novel full of suspense, angst, loyalty, deceit, and most of all, love. -- Alison Nadvornik for LibraryReads
