Between looking after her brother, working two low-paid jobs, and trying to take part-time college classes, Lynette is dangerously tired. Every penny she’s earned for years, she’s put into savings, trying to scrape together enough to take out a mortgage on the house she rents with her mother. Finally becoming a homeowner in their rapidly gentrifying Portland neighbourhood could offer Lynette the kind of freedoms she’s never had. But, when the plan is derailed, Lynette must embark on a desperate odyssey of hope and anguish.

    Willy Vlautin is one of the greatest living writers in America. Every book he has written just hits me hard and his new one is no exception. Utterly brilliant. It’s a very bleak story of a young woman called Lynette, who is living a very tough life. My heart bbreaks for her, and she’ll live on in my thoughts for quite a while. Full of working class grit, like Willy Vlautin does so well. Utterly compelling and gripping.
