Desperate to forget her past, sixteen-year-old CC arrives on her grandparents' North Louisiana farm and asks, 'will I ever feel normal again?'

Even CC's vivacious new friend, Addy, and a summer romance with steely eyed Eric can't persuade her to reveal what happened last winter in New Orleans.It's 1964 and as Beatlmania and Motown captivate America's youth, this young woman encounters small town racial tension, erupting sexual assault, and ignorance towards her beloved brain injured Uncle Bud, all issues fueling the dynamic conflicts in Leah Eskine's debut novel.
