520    On a hot, humid July morning, sixteen-year-old Cissy 
       Pickering calmly and deliberately shoots her father in the
       back. To their Mississippi community, the death of well-
       regarded attorney Richard Pickering is a fascinating 
       scandal. To Cissy's distraught mother, Caroline, it's an 
       unforgivable crime. But in Cissy's troubled mind, killing 
       her father was the only way she knew to save the two 
       people she loves most in the world. For years, Cissy has 
       endured a devil's bargain with her father, hoping that he 
       would leave her younger sisters alone if she kept his 
       abuse to herself. When that thin trust shattered, she saw 
       no other choice. Janelle Clayton, the family's matriarch, 
       has kept her distance from her daughter, Caroline-a fact 
       she now regrets-yet she hopes to do right by her 
       granddaughter. Cissy has always been an unusual girl, 
       given to compulsive counting and list-making, but Janelle 
       believes her implicitly. When Cissy is remanded to the 
       Greater Mississippi State Hospital, a caring psychiatrist 
       tries to help, yet new revelations drive Cissy to retreat 
       even further from reality. It will fall to Janelle, 
       despite her own failing health, to become Cissy's advocate
       and rescuer. And over the course of an unlikely road trip,
       Janelle and Cissy will confront the truths they've hidden 
       from the world and themselves, finding courage, deep-
       rooted resilience, and a bond tender and tough enough to 
       transform them both.
