This New York Times Notable Book is a heartwarming and humorous story of a girl growing up as her family falls apart in the 1960s South.
Sally Maulden’s mother and father are getting a divorce, and the girl has been banished to her grandparents’ home in Coldwater, Arkansas. No one seems to really care about Sally, unless you count her pet chicken . . .
But in her new town, she soon finds love offered to her from unexpected sources—including a strip-tease dancer at the Silver Moon. And once she’s crowned Coldwater Queen of October, she may even start to love herself a little.
This is “a remarkable first novel, bursting with warmth” (Chicago Tribune), named one of Library Journal’s top ten books of the year, from an “author worth watching” (The Atlanta Journal-Constitution).
“Fondly evokes small-town life in the ’60s.” —Publishers Weekly
