Summary
In Strickland County, a forgotten stretch of land in southern Appalachia, there isn't a lot of anything to go around. But when eighteen-year-old Harlowe Compton's brother is killed by the Praters, the family who controls everything from the mines to the law to the opioid trade, he wonders if the future will ever hold more than loss. With Tennessee, Harlowe feels for the first time that something good might happen, that he might have found the rarest thing of all: hope. Even as she struggles with the worst of the cards she's been dealt, Tennessee makes Harlowe believe that they can dare to forge their own path, if they only give it a shot. But as Harlowe searches for the answers behind his brother's death, his town's decay, and his family's dysfunction, he discovers truths about the people he loves and himself that are darker than he ever expected. Now, Harlowe realizes, there's no turning back. In Strickland County in southern Appalachia, there isn't a lot of anything to go around.
