Description

Childhood can be rough. But for Kenzie growing up in the Lowe home means opening the bottom drawer of her father's dresser to choose which of the three belts coiled, waiting like snakes, she wants to get whipped with; trips to Beehive Liquors for her father's vodka; and dreaming of the day she can escape apartment A5. She goes to school, she holds odd jobs, and develops her own craving for the bottle. Twenty years have passed - it's now the nineties - but not everything has changed for Kenzie. She is still haunted by her childhood, and learning that her father is dying she is shocked by her own desire to be with him during his final hours. She returns to his bedside day after day in search of a way to heal her pain. What she comes to discover in those visits is that some of us, like Hy-Lo, have stories that "started out bad, curdled and soured in the middle, and ended up worse," but for many there is still hope for change.show more
