During the summer of 1968 in Rockbridge County, Virginia, eleven-year-old Shenandoah Carmody’s mother disappeared. Her twin sister, Woody, stopped speaking, and her once-loving father slipped into a mean drunkenness unbefitting a superior court judge. As the first anniversary of their mother’s disappearance nears, her father’s threat to send Woody away and his hints at an impending remarriage spur a desperate Shenny—who was named for the Shenandoah Valley—to find her mother before its too late. While struggling to get her mute twin to reveal what she knows about the night their mother vanished, Shenny is ultimately swept up in a series of heartbreaking events that will force her to face the painful truth about herself and her family.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Shenandoah leaps off the page in vivid colour: sparky, resourceful, trying to cope with shattering damage and doing it with the matter-of-fact, heartbreaking courage that kids learn when there’s no other choice. This book is packed with warmth, wit, intelligence, images savoury enough to taste—and deep dark places that are all the more terrible for being surrounded by so much brightness.” Tana French, New York Times bestselling author
“Kagen not only delivers a spellbinding story but also takes a deep look into the mores, values, and shams of a small Southern community in an era of change.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
