Sweet Hearts

by Melanie Rae Thon
With a lyrical beauty that reverberates off every page, Sweet Hearts tells the tale of a brother and sister that is as haunting as it is majestic

Sixteen-year-old Flint Zimmer escapes juvenile detention, hitchhikes 612 miles across Montana, and arrives home, trailing “bad weather and bad luck,” to be reunited with his half sister, ten-year-old Cecile, the only person he trusts and loves. Together they terrorize a local doctor and steal their mother’s car, then strike out alone on a desperate journey south to the Crow Indian Reservation, where their ancestors once lived—and where Flint’s rage and fear will erupt into irrevocable violence.
