From the author ofThe After Party, a lush, sexy, evocative debut novel of family secrets and girls-school rituals, set in the 1930s South.

It is 1930, the midstof the Great Depression. After her mysterious role in a family tragedy, passionate, strong-willed Thea Atwell, age fifteen, has been cast out of her Florida home, exiled to an equestrienne boarding school for Southern debutantes. High in the Blue Ridge Mountains, with its complex social strata ordered by money, beauty, and girls friendships, the Yonahlossee Riding Camp for Girls is a far remove from the free-roaming, dreamlike childhood Thea shared with her twin brother on their familys citrus farma world now partially shattered. As Thea grapples with her responsibility for the events of the past year that led her here, she finds herself enmeshed in a new order, one that will change her sense of what is possible for herself, her family, her country.

Weaving provocatively between home and school, the narrative powerfully unfurls the true story behind Theas expulsion from her family, but it isnt long before the mystery of her past is rivaled by the question of how it will shape her future. Part scandalous love story, part heartbreaking family drama,The Yonahlossee Riding Camp for Girlsis an immersive, transporting page-turnera vivid, propulsive novel about sex, love, family, money, class, home, and horses, all set against the ominous threat of the Depressionand the major debut of an important new writer.
