It’s 1964 and sixteen- year- old CC arrives at her grandparents’ farm in north Louisiana, very different from the small house in New Orleans where she lives with her mother. Bedraggled and filled with angst, she brushes aside all attempts from her grandparents to break through her isolation and anger. CC pans to serve her time on the farm and keep her dark secrets to herself, but her strategy is thwarted by her new friend, Addy, a vivacious seventeen-year-old obsessed with Elvis and a new red truck. They are joined by Johnny, CC’s eighteen -year -old cousin, determined to rescue his father, Bud, from possible confinement to an institution due to a brain injury. Enter steely eyed Eric, who aims to win CC over with his piercing dark eyes and daunting cowboy hat. In the background is Gran, loving grandmother, mentor and woman ahead of her time , all qualities to both confound and comfort any teenager. But CC is armed with Beatle and Motown records, enough artillery and attitude to hold everyone at bay until she reaches her moment of reckoning.
Join CC in this historical novel sure to engage both YA and adult readers on a journey filled with 60’s music and headlines – and enough conflicts to help CC find the path to her road home.
