Price: $23.93 on amazon.com

Nine years after the release of her debut β€” a New York Times notable book β€” Tinti returns with the story of a girl, Loo, and her criminal father who takes her with him from city to city.

As the longtime editor of lit mag One Story, Tinti knows how to blend emotional connections with engrossing plots.
