Magical realism and gritty mystery meet in Brooks's provocative dissection of family, friendship, and faith. "A tense psychological thriller...hard-hitting."--Publishers Weekly Dawn Bundy lives in a cave. In her head. Where's she's been hiding for two years. Hiding behind headphones. From the two hottest girls at school, in their impossibly short skirts and unbearably tight tops, their skin close enough to touch. Not talking to her mother, not about what matters. Not thinking of her dad, the drug addict, the ex-con, born-again but far gone. Two years is a long time. Enough for the cave to grow so small that her breath feels like stone in her throat. Two years is no time at all. Nowhere near enough to forget. To pretend that nothing happened. Deep one perfect morning.

It's great book, when I bought it I couldn't stop reading it.
It's one of the best books I read in a long time.

I thought it will be like a lesbian-related story so I borrowed it from the library
but, great disappointment, it merely, merely is... damn you stupid inside cover intro!
and even the plot is so bland and unexciting throughout the whole book.
Hm I don't like it at all.
