National Book Award finalist: A newly arrived New Yorker disrupts a small Southern town with her claims of a heavenly vision. Things used to be normal in Casper, Alabama. Charity Pittman was a regular fourteen-year-old, the perfect daughter, following in the footsteps of her prickly preacher of a father. But then Adrienne Dabney moves to town, with her big-city ways, artsy ideas, and a sensory deprivation experiment that's cast her as an absolute New York weirdo. Reverend Pittman thinks it simpler than that-she's the devil incarnate. Charity thinks she's just amazing. But no one knows what to think of Adrienne when, after a three-week meditative cleansing, she claims that she's seen Jesus sitting in her living room. It's a vision-and an admission-that splits the God-fearing community between heavenly believers and hell-raising skeptics. As people line up to see the divine Jesus chair, Charity is stuck somewhere in the middle, questioning her father, her religion-and herself. Casper may have praying for a miracle, but it's headed for disaster, in this "thought-provoking" story of a small town by the author of If I Should Die Before I Wake and Dancing on the Edge (School Library Journal).
