Staff Recommendation: Be prepared for your pulse to race as you read this vivid debut novel. During a blizzard in the Upper Midwest, sixteen year old Percy searches for her missing mother at a local meth lab. She finds dealer Shelton unconscious with a young woman and, upstairs and unexpected, a desperately neglected baby. Percy takes the baby and journeys into the snow in search of help from the one friend she can rely on. Meanwhile Shelton sets out to hunt them down with his crew of addled mercenaries. Percy and Shelton are compelling, complex characters and the reader is plunged deep into their dangerous world.
