Publisher's Summary

Solemn Redvine is a precocious Mississippi girl who senses a nearby baby may be her half sibling - the outcome of her father's mistakes with a married woman who lives in their trailer park.

After Solemn witnesses a man throwing the baby down a community well, she struggles to understand the event, leaving her forever changed. As Solemn finds refuge in fantasies of stardom as well as friendships with her brother's wife and a nearby girl, the ill-fated baby's doomed mother disappears without a trace. Solemn remains trapped by connections to the missing other woman and an honest cop who suspects there is more to the story than others on the small local police force want to see.

When her father's next mistake - a robbery - lands Solemn in a group home for troubled girls, she meets a Chicago delinquent who wants to escape. There, Solemn must face the truth of who she really is and what she is really made of.

Just not good

I listen to a lot of audio books and I’m typically able to make it through each but about 1/3 of the way through (maybe less) I just couldn’t continue. The story was all over the place and didn’t really grab my attention. Although the story was supposed to be written in more modern times (2000’s) it seemed as though the town in which the story took place was from the 80’s or even further back. The story then had too many plot twist and didn’t tie up loose ends. It was an awful read.
