Set in the rural deep South, this focuses on 15 year-old Lisa, the daughter of a prostitute,and Clint, the car thief she runs away with to escape the miserable life with her mother

But the happier times soon disappear when Clint makes her procure young runaways for him ...

No one notices that these teenage girls are missing until an anonymous call to the police reports their murders

Could the caller - and the killer - be Lisa?

Rebecca Gilman has created a riveting, unsentimental portrait of a young woman whose most striking quality is not her capacity for evil but the depth of her emptiness, in an environment as harsh and unyielding as the contours of her life
