Annotation The true story of one woman's search for identity within the mythology of family and America itself, this memoir is set in the Colorado Plateau, where Forrester grew up with her mother and brother in a single-wide trailer. Living in a small rural town, Forrester navigates feelings of isolation, an abusive boyfriend, sexual assault, and a failed college attempt to forge a separate identity. As young adults, after their mother's accidental death, Forrester and her brother are left with an increasingly strained relationship that becomes a microcosm of America's political landscape. Some descriptions of sex and violence.
