A coming-of-age story of a young white girl who fights racism and betrayal as she tries to unravel the truth about her parents’ deaths and escape the town that lied to her.

Ivy, a young girl growing up in a small town in the 60s where everyone knows everything, discovers her family and the people in her town are keeping secrets about the night a car crash killed her parents.

The secrets she uncovers and her efforts to leave the town that lied to her, force Ivy to confront betrayal, death, racism, and the meaning of family.
