Instant New York Times BestsellerAn Entertainment Weekly 'Must List' Pick"The last page is as satisfying as the first." - Kathryn Stockett"I really loved this book... I can't praise it enough." - Anne Rice"It's a book to read and reread, one that will only get better with time." - Tom Franklin It was the summer everything changed. ... My Sunshine Away unfolds in a Baton Rouge neighborhood best known for cookouts on sweltering summer afternoons, cauldrons of spicy crawfish, and passionate football fandom. But in the summer of 1989, when fifteen-year-old Lindy Simpson - free spirit, track star, and belle of the block - experiences a horrible crime late one evening near her home, it becomes apparent that this idyllic stretch of Southern suburbia has a dark side, too.
