Narrator Sophie Amoss taps into her Southern roots to give voice to young, bright, and willful Jess Harney--a 16-year-old orphan who cuts her hair, puts on pants, and takes up a six-shooter to make her way in the world. It's well after the Civil War, and when her father dies and the homestead falls into disrepair, Jess uses her trick-shot skills to talk her way into being a member of the governor's personal guard, all the while hoping to track down her outlaw brother. The action is bloody and unyielding, and the language is colorful and evocative. Amoss revels in telling the story of a girl who finds freedom in impersonating a man and thinking on her feet.
