For twelve-year-old Mony (short for Ramona Louise), a small town in Georgia and the stories her pa tells are all she knows of life. Her family is poor, but they work hard to make ends meet. And Mony has Georgie, her beloved older sister and very best friend.
Then, in horrifying succession, one disaster after another strikes and Mony, Georgie, and their baby sister are suddenly on their own. They must learn to survive, just the three of them. But Mony alone must cope with the one secret she fears will destroy them as a family.
Told in a funny, sensitive, and heartbreakingly original voice, the story of Mony and her sister is the story of family, and the unbreakable ties of love, devotion, and family history.
