Whistling in the Dark
by Lesley Kagen

Whistiling in the Dark


Sally O’Malley made a promise to her daddy before he died. She swore she’d look after her sister, Troo. Now, during the summer of 1959, the girls’ mother is hospitalized, their stepfather has abandoned them for a six pack, and Sally and Troo are on the Loose. And so is a murderer and molester. Join us for a virtual discussion. Books are available to borrow.
