The New York Times–bestselling novel “deftly capturing the hidden thoughts” of a child in an abusive home is “haunting” and “not soon forgotten.” (Booklist)
In many ways, Carrie Parker is like any other eight-year-old girl—playing make-believe, going to school, dreaming of faraway places. But even in her imagination, she can’t pretend away the hardships of her impoverished North Carolina home or protect her younger sister, Emma.
As the big sister, Carrie is determined to do anything to keep Emma safe from a life of neglect and abuse at the hands of their alcoholic stepfather—abuse their momma can’t seem to see, let alone stop.
But after the sisters’ plan to run away from home unravels, Carrie’s world takes a shocking turn—and one shattering moment ultimately reveals a truth that leaves everyone reeling.

“Beautifully written . . . a must-read.” —Closer magazine

    standing and when. From the side in the daytime, my hair looks purple-black, but from the back at night it’s like burned wood in the fireplace. When it’s clean, Emma’s hair is the color of a cotton ball: white, white, white. But usually it’s so dirty it looks like the dust
