Dear Librarians,

After a shooting at the local factory where her parents work, eight-year-old Karen finds comfort in obsessive rituals and superstitions. As the years pass, she begins to understand her mother's unusual behavior and their complicated relationship until a shocking discovery shatters her world and disturbing memories begin to surface.

This beautifully evocative memoir chronicles Karen's life, illuminating small-town factory life; exploring a complicated mother-daughter bond; and unfolding a smart, but insecure girl's coming of age.
