Summary
"Set in fictional small rural towns, these stories explore young people who grow up against a religious backdrop, mothers who balk at society's imposed identities, and characters who explore their individual roles within their families as they navigate sexuality, suffering, and shame. These narrators are blunt and sometimes obsessive, but bravely optimistic as they strive to be the best versions of themselves."--
