Hayley Jo Zimmerman is gone. Taken. And the people of the small town of Twisted Tree must come to terms with this terrible loss and their place in it.

In this brilliantly written novel, one girl's story unfolds through the stories of those who knew her. A supermarket clerk recalls an encounter with a disturbingly thin Hayley Jo. An ex-priest remembers Hayley Jo as the best friend of Laura, whose mother he once loved. And Laura berates herself for all the running they did and how it fed her friend's addiction.

Hayley Jo's death recasts and connects the lives of her community in astonishingly violent and tender ways.

The narrators include: Robertson Dean, Traci Svendsgaard, Cassandra Campbell, Ray Porter, G. Valmont Thomas, Paul Michael Garcia, Kirsten Potter, Lorna Raver, Kristoffer Tabori, Joe Barrett, Malcolm Hillgartner, Anthony Heald, Dion Graham, Tai Sammons, and Grover Gardner.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nancy | 12/19/2010

    " This was an amazing book. Stories within stories and they all fell together beautifully. Highly recommended! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lorna | 11/15/2010

    " Dark, disturbing well written words flow out of this book. The author never gave us a break to breathe. Reading this book is like being trapped in a car that has been submerged in an icy lake. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lynda | 10/19/2010

    " This book was beautifully written, but I almost had to stop reading because there were a couple of stories in which rattlesnakes played a large role and it really gave me the shudders. The chapters are short stories in themselves, all revolving around a town and an event. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Claire | 4/13/2010

    " This book was more like a bunch of short stories that were connected by a thin thread. It was hard to keep all of the people straight because everything happened over about 20 or 30 years, but without a straight timeline. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shelly | 4/13/2010

    " Great writing. Not very uplifting topics. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Monica | 3/29/2010

    " Short stories making up a novel. All characters touched big/small by murdered girl. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jenn | 3/10/2010

    " It's misleading to call this loosely connected short story collection a novel. The stories are dull & uninspiring though nicely written. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Beth | 1/21/2010

    " story told from multiple viewpoints but all revolving around a serial murderer who targets anorexic young girls - sort of stream of consciousness "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dawn | 1/6/2010

    " Mesmerizing...anorexic girl is murdered and each chapter relates a story about one of the townspeople who knew her. "
