SweetgirlBook - 2016
With the heart, daring, and evocative atmosphere of "Winter's Bone" and "True Grit," and driven by the raw, whip-smart voice of Percy James, a blistering debut about a fearless sixteen-year old girl whose search for her missing mother leads to an unexpected discovery, and a life or death struggle in the harsh frozen landscape of the Upper Midwest. As a blizzard bears down, Percy James sets off to find her troubled mother, Carletta. Instead, she finds a crying baby girl left alone in a freezing room upstairs of her brother's cabin. Percy knows she must save her - a split-second decision that is the beginning of a dangerous odyssey in which she must battle the elements and evade Shelton and a small band of desperate criminals, hell-bent on getting that baby back.
