“A frank view of life in a juvenile detention center. . . . Absorbing and wrenching.” — Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Sadie has always been the responsible one. Not like her older sister, Carla, who leaves her three-year-old daughter, Lulu, with Aunt Sadie while she parties and gets high. But when both sisters are caught up in a drug deal — wrong place, wrong time — Sadie does the responsible thing and confesses to a crime she didn’t commit. Her choice keeps Carla out of jail and Lulu out of foster care, but Sadie’s former life disappears beyond the stark bars of her cell.
