Summary
  • Kalyn, living under a pseudonym, and Gus, who has cerebral palsy, get caught in an uproar in Samsboro, Kentucky as the truth about the brutal murder of Gus's father by Kalyn's comes to light
  • In Samsboro, Kentucky, Kalyn Spence's name is inseparable from the brutal murder her father committed when he was a teenager. Kalyn must attend school under a pseudonym or face the lingering anger of Samsboro's citizens, who refuse to forget the crime. Gus Peake, a Samsboro native, is known as the "disabled kid" because of his cerebral palsy, or as the kid whose dad was murdered. Gus just wants to be known as himself. They meet, and a deep friendship forms-- until their families' pasts emerge. Can they break free from a legacy of inherited lies and chart their own paths forward? -- adapted from jacket
