In today’s world of shaky social structures, an elite education is invaluable. But, a body count just might be too much.
Jannie Sparrow, a small woman, has secured a modest home in Sunny Point, Louisiana where the sun is hot, but the high school is the best.
While Jannie is attending a parent-teacher conference, the high school was struck by a mass murder, and no one asks why. Now adored by the world as a result of saving lives while shielding her son from harm, she finds that a toy chest in her home is full of guns, and a bomb.
As a system of powerful residents pressures her to keep quiet, she discovers that most of the evidence no longer exists, and all of the shooters are believed to be dead. The investigation is set to be closed and she thinks this is almost over. But how can this ever be over?
Does she cause her sons to be imprisoned and turn it all to shame, that will last for generations? Or does she put on a fake smile and look away from all of the families of the victims and succumb to fame and fortune?
