Knucklebone by K.L. Gore
“I was eleven when the bones washed up on shore.”
When rebellious sixteen-year-old Cheyenne is sent to live with black sheep Aunt Fran, she becomes trapped in a secluded society filled with crazy criminals, haunting secrets, and deliberate traitors.
At least she has her aunt. Because families always stick together.
As Aunt Fran’s childhood stories piece together a revenge-speckled past with Cheyenne’s mother, she learns people aren’t always who they appear to be.
Sometimes “family” is just a label. And freedom always has a cost.
