WINNER of the Willa Literary Award for Best Young Adult Fiction

On the unforgiving Depression era Colorado plains, Cissy Funk is alone on a scrap of a farm with her mother and brother, struggling to keep her hopes alive in the face of her mother's coldness and her own broken heart. When her Aunt Vera arrives with warm hugs and pretty clothes, Cissy finally has a chance to find safety and love. But when a long-hidden family secret threatens to tear everything away, Cissy must find the courage to fight for what she needs. With dust and danger all around, it's up to her to prove that even in the harshest of times, love is stronger.

If you enjoyed the grit and heart of Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens, you'll love Cissy Funk and the long-lost family secrets of the Colorado plains. 

“admirably evokes the dusty, gritty aura of Depression-era Colorado” – Publisher’s Weekly
