Young Fee Finneman has a secret. If revealed, her dearest loved ones could end up in prison—or be hailed as national heroes. Or both. But Fee has another secret—a secret buried deep within her subconscious. A secret so sinister that, if surfaced, could hijack her very soul.
In this chilling tale of abuse and abandonment, rebirth and self-discovery, 9-year-old Fee rises from the ashes of an unspeakable tragedy and finds herself alone in the world. She has no living relatives. No one even knows she is alive—except the man who finds her disoriented and confused cowering behind a bush in the remote Texas hill country. With a new lease on life, she is determined to overcome the unimaginable trauma suffered upon her in early childhood. But as she navigates the uncharted waters of adolescence, she loses her focus. Along the way, she encounters many obstacles, not the least of which is her inner struggle to come to terms with her budding sexuality.
Fee will make you laugh; she will make you cry. You will love her one minute and hate her the next. And if you’re not careful, she’ll get under your skin…and into your heart.
