Hello folks! Have you heard of this book MY SUNSHINE AWAY by M.O. Walsh? With people like Tom Franklin and Kathryn Stockett writing blurbs for it, I hope you have!
Well, anyway, it hit the book stores/online yesterday and was the Amazon Debut Spotlight Selection for 2015- and people are talking about it. Sarah @ Sarah’s Book Shelves is calling it “fav book of 2015 so far”. BOLO Books tweeted to me yesterday “So good, right? I’m not sure how I will write a review.” And the praise just keeps piling on!
I’m reading it now. And I have around 120+ pages left. And I just want to be home to finish it!
So, thanks to the cool folks at Putnam, I have 1 copy to give to a lucky reader!
Here’s the summary from Goodreads:
It was the summer everything changed.…
My Sunshine Away unfolds in a Baton Rouge neighborhood best known for cookouts on sweltering summer afternoons, cauldrons of spicy crawfish, and passionate football fandom. But in the summer of 1989, when fifteen-year-old Lindy Simpson—free spirit, track star, and belle of the block—experiences a horrible crime late one evening near her home, it becomes apparent that this idyllic stretch of Southern suburbia has a dark side, too.
In My Sunshine Away, M.O. Walsh brilliantly juxtaposes the enchantment of a charmed childhood with the gripping story of a violent crime, unraveling families, and consuming adolescent love. Acutely wise and deeply honest, it is an astonishing and page-turning debut about the meaning of family, the power of memory, and our ability to forgive.
