Talking Points: This is a book that lingers in your mind and stays with you for a while. Partly because it is a well crafted page turner, but also because it's hard to imagine having no permanent memory.

There are racial issues, moral issues and family and friendship dynamics but the stronger thread is really about the mind set of small towns and the difficulties of overcoming a bad reputation, regardless of it's truth. Many of the characters actions and non action to situations and circumstances will also stay with you.
