When Tuesday Storm's mother plunges headfirst down a flight of stairs, it's the second-worst thing that ever happens in Tuesday's life. The first? Mama survives the accident. Suddenly she's furious with Tuesday for some mysterious “bad thing” she's done. The doctor says the aggression is due to a brain injury and only temporary. So the Storms do what any proud, Southern family would. They hide the problem, hoping it will go away. Meanwhile little Tuesday becomes the target of unrelenting hostility and twisted “punishments.” In this based-on-a-true-story novel, a now-grown Tuesday recounts, with raw emotion, her sudden “loss” of a nurturing mother, and the tragic years to follow living with the monster in her mother's clothes--a monster she can't stop loving.

When Cylin Busby was nine years old, she was obsessed with Izod clothing, the Muppets, and a box turtle she kept in a shoebox. Then everything changed overnight. Her police officer father, John, was driving to his shift when someone leveled a shotgun at his window. The blasts that followed left John's jaw on the passenger seat of his car-literally. While clinging to life, he managed to write down the name of the only person he thought could have pulled the trigger. The suspect? A local ex-con with rumored mob connections. The motive? Officer Busby was scheduled to testify against the suspect's family in an upcoming trial. Overnight, the Busbys went from being the "family next door" to one under 24-hour armed guard, with police escorts to school, and no contact with friends. Worse, the shooter was still on the loose, and it seemed only a matter of time before he'd come after John-or someone else in the family-again. With few choices left to them, the Busby family went into hiding, severing all ties to the only life they had known.
