Summary
"A stirring debut novel about a young woman searching for her kidnapped brother after she commits a terrible crime but longs for redemption. Thirteen-year-old Venus Black, a straitlaced, straight-A student is the last person anyone would expect to get in trouble, but when she is arrested for committing a shocking crime, it is clear that there was more going on in Venus's world than anyone knew. When she is released from a juvenile detention center five years later, she assumes a new identity in the hope of escaping the pain of her past, the mother that disappointed her, and her criminal reputation. Most importantly, she pledges to find her beloved, mentally disabled younger brother, Leo, who was kidnapped while she was gone. A newcomer to fiction, Heather Lloyd crafts a constellation of captivating, fresh voices in this redemptive novel that forces us to question our definitions of right and wrong, the difficulties in starting over, and whether or not it's possible to forgive the family we're born with--and live with the family we choose to be our own"--
