In 1969 Alabama, eleven-year-old Dixie Dupree is already an expert liar. When she learns that the family she once believed was happy has deep fractures, she begins recording everything in her diary: her parents' fights, her father's drinking and fatal accident, and the arrival of Uncle Ray. When she is sexually abused, her attempts to find help are met with disbelief because of the damage her past lies have done.
"In 1969 Alabama, eleven-year-old Dixie Dupree learns that the family she once believed was happy has deep fractures and records everything in her diary in this coming-of-age story about mothers and daughters, the guilt and pain that pass between generations, and the truths that are impossible to hide, especially from ourselves"-- Provided by publisher.
