Overview

With his single mother in jail, Sequoyah, a fifteen-year-old Cherokee boy, is placed in foster care with the Troutt family. Literally and figuratively scarred by his unstable upbringing, Sequoyah has spent years mostly keeping to himself, living with his emotions pressed deep below the surface--that is, until he meets the seventeen-year-old Rosemary, another youth staying with the Troutts. Sequoyah and Rosemary bond over their shared Native American backgrounds and tumultuous paths through the foster care system, but as Sequoyah's feelings toward Rosemary deepen, the precariousness of their lives and the scars of their pasts threaten to undo them both.

Reviews

A masterly tale of life and death, hopes and fears, secrets and lies. -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review) A smart, dark novel of adolescence, death, and rural secrets...Hobson's narrative control is stunning, carrying the reader through scenes and timelines with verbal grace and sparse detail. Far more than a mere coming-of-age story, this is a remarkable and moving novel. -- Publishers Weekly (starred review) A strange and powerful Native American bildungsroman . . . this novel breathes with a dark, pulsing life of its own. -- Tulsa Voice Hobson's tale reverberates with the hope of connection as it explores Native displacement and loss. -- New York Times Book Review Soulful. -- Dallas Morning News
