A stunning, fast-paced graphic novel from the author of Eisner-nominated
A Blanket of Butterflies.
Curtis has returned to Fort Smith, six weeks sober. He doesn’t have any sober friends, his mom’s still drinking, and his best friend (and secret crush) Lacey probably is too. Still, he’s determined to stay sober and help his people. Along the way, he might just be able to help himself.
An infamous bootlegger, Benny has profited off Fort Smith’s pain for decades. After being critically wounded in an attempt on his life, Benny knows he doesn’t have much time before the poison in his blood takes him.
Can Curtis convince Benny to return his grandfather’s land? Will the Little People answer his call? And can Benny find a way to make amends and leave a legacy he can be proud of?
