About the Book

It’s 1988, the ten-year anniversary of the Jonestown massacre. The setting is the Bay area, in California. Phoebe, the niece of Jim Jones, struggles to maintain her new identity and career as the date of the actual anniversary arrives. She lives with her best friend, Sara, a struggling musician, whose boyfriend is a devout Christian. This makes Phoebe even more uncomfortable in light of what she’s been through.

 

Tired of “running,” Phoebe eventually insists upon remaining at her family-inherited home in the Bay area. But as the news coverage is more and more incessant, she worries that people know who and where she really is. On the eve of the anniversary her best friend and boyfriend are there for her. And ultimately, it turns out to be a night of emotions, turmoil, and even more.
