FOR USE IN SCHOOLS AND LIBRARIES ONLY. Charity is torn between her preacher father, a powerful man who has driven away her mother, alienated her sister, and controls the town, and unconventional artist Adrienne Dabney, who has returned home to conduct an artistic experiment.
There's a startling, almost itchy moment in every adolescent's life when she or he first realizes that adults are fallible. Yet, for 14-year-old Charity, the revelation is even more profound: not only is her dad (the town's preacher) merely wrong about the eccentric Adrienne Dabney, he's dang-blasted and over-the-top wrong. Although she's always been a perfect preacher's daughter, Charity is about to shock the whole town by standing up to her father, proving him wrong in front of God and everyone. This riveting and acclaimed novel will resonate with any teen who has ever wanted to knock a little bit of sense into a parent's head!About the Author :
