THE TRESTLE AT POPE LICK CREEK

SOMEONE, BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE, HAS GOT TO BREAK YOU IN HALF

Dalton Chance, seventeen years old and an open book. Pace Creagan, eighteen, brimful of adventure, fearless and feared. To Dalton, she's irresistible. To Pace, he's a challenge. The Trestle at Pope Lick Creek is a beautiful and haunting tale. A coming-of-age story with a wicked twist, it reaches into the depths of a nation and asks what lies beneath. The story, which unfolds largely in flashback, opens with Dalton Chance - a local boy who once dreamed of going to college - making shadow puppets against the walls of a prison cell. Dalton is a suspected of killing his friend, Pace Creagan, a rebellious girl who challenged him to run across the trestle.
