The Handmaid's Tale meets Wilder Girls in this unique, voice-driven novel from Kelly McWilliams.

Her younger brother, Ezekiel, will die without the insulin she barters for once a month, even though medicine is considered outlawed. Is she a sinner for saving him? Is her sister, Beth, a sinner for dreaming of the world beyond Red Creek?
