A small farmhouse on a watermelon field may not seem like much, but for one little girl, it’s where magic happens. It’s where her father runs with her every morning, plays Sam Cooke on the radio, and defends death row inmates who have no one else to stand up for them. Oscar-nominated author Lucy Alibar (Beasts of the Southern Wild) presents an unforgettable story about her childhood as a fourth grader and part-time legal secretary, a heartfelt and irreverent one-woman love letter to family, the South, and the belief that everyone deserves a defender.
