We Begin at the End by Chris Whitaker

In this book we meet Duchess Day Radley, a thirteen year old self-proclaimed outlaw, trying to hold her family together despite her mom’s self-destructive tendencies.  She crosses paths with Walk, the local police chief in the same small town in which he’d grown up with Star, Duchess’ mom, and Vincent, just released from prison for killing Star’s sister thirty years ago.  The stories of each of these people inter-twine as Duchess and Walk find the past revealing itself as they confront the future, and the possibility of love.
