When her revenge plan goes awry, fourteen-year-old Dani Burkhart finds herself in unexpected places: the back seat of a cop car, the police station holding room, Juvenile Court. She wants her old life, the one with a family that’s not falling apart. She wants to stay in her home with the woods in back, and keep her carefree dog with the windshield wiper tail, and hear her big brother laugh and shout “Sweet, D-Dawg!” when her curveball dips like a sparrow. Dani has always believed her grandmother’s philosophy: Right will win. But if everything is going wrong, why not punish the neighbor who’s to blame, who pulled the string that unraveled everything? Makes sense – unless there’s more to the story than Dani wants to admit.
