"I had been wrestling the place I came from for years."
Losing her salty-dog grandmother "Jebo" rocked Penny Sue's life completely off the rails. But Jebo knew better than to leave without a proper goodbye. She left Penny Sue something that felt as unexpected and potent as Jebo herself.
Four diaries--filled with a lifetime of scratched down family secrets and penetrating poems.
As Penny Sue slowly turns the pages, she unearths the secrets of a tightlipped family that keeps the past blurred and buried. But where is the fourth diary? And who is sending Penny Sue ransom notes with brazen and unorthodox conditions for obtaining it?
As the painful, gorgeous truth in Jebo's diaries works its magic, it frees Penny Sue to see the woman she was meant to be . . . and a realization that sometimes lightning really does strike twice.
