A Southern coming-of-age...Ford's Shreveport is an unforgiving place-swampy, seductive and judgmental-that's reflected in her blunt but intoxicating prose. -Publishers Weekly Eleven-year-old Blaze James and her twin sister, aerial, know two things beyond a doubt. They're two of the prettiest girls in Shreveport, Louisiana, and they'll always be there for each other. Then one night, a gas explosion leaves their father dead and aerial severely burned, changing their lives forever. While aerial goes with their mother to Baton Rouge for treatment, Blaze stays behind with a neighbor. Free-spirited and unconventional, Felicity Hardaway opens Blaze's eyes to a whole new world, inspiring her to explore her own budding desires...and the answers she finds will bring passion, betrayal, and a love beyond expectations. "A southern-set, fast-moving coming-of-age tale with the immediacy of informal storytelling and intimate conversation somewhat like Alice Walker's The Color Purple...A riveting tale of aching love, deceit, and shifting points on the continuum of human sexuality." -Booklist "A startling, provocative novel...A story that is as unexpected as it is entertaining." -APOOO BookClub "A witty and talented author with a knack for creating unforgettable characters." -Zane "Ford creates unpretentious, gritty masterpieces." -Upscale
