Publisher Description:
Deborah Joy Corey captures the voice of rural poverty and the voice of a single, struggling family in southeastern Canada. The voice belongs to an innocent nine-year-old girl, who, throughout this startling novel, remains a nameless, silent outsider in a family whose troubles don't leave much energy for paying attention to someone who isn't in desperate need.

"Deborah Joy Corey makes a stunning debut with her first novel." -Maclean's


Contributor Bio(s): Corey, Deborah Joy: - Deborah Joy Corey was born and raised in a rural area of Canada called Temperance Vale and now divides her time between Maine and New Brunswick. Her writing has appeared in a number of magazines, including Mademoiselle, Story, and Ploughshares.
