Rocky narrates this book from age 8 right into adulthood. We see his brother disappear, his parents despair, grow old and get sick. We watch Rocky grow up and make his own mistakes, all while slowly uncovering what really happened on the night that Paul disappeared. The book will make you feel so many different emotions; you'll be sad, and shocked and heavy-hearted, but also want to lay out on the sun dried grass smoking a cigarette listening to Neil Young, not having a care in the world.

— Melodie


Welcome to Spencerville, Virginia, 1977. A time when teenagers roamed wild and free. When sons worshipped God, loved their mothers, and feared their fathers. And when eight-year-old Rocky still worshipped his older brother, Paul--sixteen and full of rebel cool--who was happy to have his younger brother as his sidekick, until one day things went terribly wrong and Paul disappeared. Seven years later, Rocky, now a teenager himself, must reckon with the past after a mysterious double murder brings terror and suspicion to their small town, and to their broken family.
