When eight-year-old Tuesday Storm's mother plunges headfirst down a flight of stairs, it's the second-worst thing that ever happens in Tuesday's life. The worst? Mama survives the accident. Suddenly she's furious with Tuesday for some mysterious "bad thing" she's done. The doctor says the aggression is due to a brain injury and only temporary. So the Storms do what any proud, Southern family would. They hide the problem, hoping it will go away. Meanwhile little Tuesday becomes the target of unrelenting hostility and twisted "punishments." In this based-on-a-true-story novel, a now-grown Tuesday recounts, with raw emotion, her sudden "loss" of a nurturing parent and the tragic years to follow living with the monster in her mother's clothes--a monster she can't stop loving.
