Laney--a skinny, awkward teenager alone in the world--thinks she's found a kindred spirit in thirty-five-year-old Delilah.nbsp;Then the police come to ask Laney questions and she finds herself reconstructing a story of suspense, deceit, and revenge; a story that will haunt her forever.

Seven hundred miles away, in Texas, Miss Baby has the hardened heart of a woman who has been used by men in every possible way, yet she is desperate for true love. When she meets a stranger, a man who claims he can't remember his real name or his past but who seems gentle and trusting, Miss Baby thinks she may have finally found someone to love, someone who will protect her from the abusive men who fill her past.

But Miss Baby and Laney are connected by a terrible crime, and, bit by bit, the complex web of deceptions and seemingly small misjudgments they've each helped to create starts to unravel--all the way to the shocking, tragic climax.

This book is written from several people's perspectives. I found it difficult to stay focused, as it jumped from person to person and present to past. I could not finish it.
