Lowell is a fifteen-year-old boy with no conventional role models. He’s caught between Cash, his born-again mother, and Hardy, his rambunctious granddad whose penchant for gambling and radical socialism has made him persona non grata in town. A mysterious murder in an abandoned peach orchard has brought Lowell to the attention of the police and now he must choose his truth. Or as Hardy has taught him, “There’s something in between lying and not lying. It’s called a story.”
