In this delectable first novel from bestselling author Bailey White, we are introduced to the peculiar yet enormously lovable people who inhabit a sleepy small town in southern Georgia.

And then there's Louise, who is trying to summon Martian invaders... Completely hilarious and utterly original, Quite a Year for Plums will make you grin so hard your cars will hurt.
