Thomas, Leah - Wild and Crooked

SKU: 9781547600021
Acclaimed author Leah Thomas blends a small-town setting with a mysterious long-ago crime in a novel about breaking free from the past.
In Samsboro, Kentucky, Kalyn Spence’s name is inseparable from the brutal murder her father committed when he was a teenager. Forced to return to town, Kalyn must attend school under a pseudonym…or suffer from the lingering anger over her father’s crime.
Gus Ellis has never had the luxury of redefining himself. A Samsboro native, he’s either known as the "disabled kid" because of his cerebral palsy, or as the kid whose dad was murdered. Gus just wants to get out.
When Gus meets Kalyn, her frankness is refreshing, and they form a deep friendship. Until their families’ pasts emerge. And when the accepted version of the truth is threatened, she and Gus are caught in the center of the town’s uproar. Can they break free from the legacy of inherited lies and chart their own paths forward?
