Adjusting to the sweltering heat of the Mississippi Delta is the least of Teri’s troubles. Dragged there by her mother’s ill-advised quest for career enlightenment, she must now drudge her way through a new school, the constant tensions between her parents, and the duplicitous nature of teenagers and adults alike.
But then she meets a strange boy at school, Nother Martin. In contrast to her own tangled relationships, the comfort of Nother’s strong family bonds and his roots in the depthless South seem as unfathomable as the Ivory-billed woodpecker she observes in the swamp. And in this new world of moonshine and roadhouses, fortune tellers and grizzled Blues legends, Teri discovers a better, wiser version of herself.
